Maplelawn Historic Garden

There’s a beautiful public garden not far from us, surrounded by a stone wall. I have no idea why in all of my 30 years, I’ve never walked through it. It’s a beautiful property on the edge of Westboro, attached to an old stone house (built in the 1830’s) that is now an upscale restaurant. The garden itself is manicured in a traditional European style, with symmetrical pathways around lush, wild beds of classic flowers: peonies, roses, poppies. It is definitely worth a visit- you might even see a bunny rabbit nibbling on the greenery!
