This Halloween I spent the night in the hospital doing a sleep study. Entertaining, yet boring. LAST Halloween [aka 2021] we spent our Halloween night at New England Botanic Garden at Tower Hill in Boylston, MA. I associate “Boylston” with Boston so much that I had no idea there was an actual Boylston, MA. It’s just NE of Worcester, about an hour and a half from us. I saw an ad on Facebook for their Autumn Illuminated exhibit last year [pic on the left is a screen shot from their ad] and surprised Jim with tickets:
Upon our arrival, the sunset was stunning. It was too bad their parking lot construction was going on so I couldn’t get better photos of it:
Here are the photos I took as we wandered through the Illuminated gardens.
The lighted garden was smaller than we expected, yet beautiful. You walk along a circular path that takes you by outdoor art exhibits and sculpture, with a few garden gnomes thrown in (for “Gnomevember”):
The sunset continually added new and amazing colors to the evening:
Final sunset shot as we walked back to the car:
I would highly recommend a visit to this botanical garden and museum. I’m not sure what mountain range they are in, but it’s beautiful country for sure.
