French Festival at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens

It might come as a surprise, but I do have other interests beyond cherry blossom trees: all things French and gardens anywhere. This year, I was lucky enough to be accepted for the Garden Docent Training Program at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens. I was thrilled when my tour passed the test and I joined the ranks of Hillwood’s Garden Docents in May.

Hillwood’s moniker is “Where Fabulous Lives,” a fitting tribute to its benefactor, Marjorie Merriweather Post and an apt descriptor of the collections inside the mansion and of the gardens that surround it. If you choose to visit, I hope I’ll be lucky enough to be your Garden Docent!
