Field Trip !

Welcome to the Sonnenberg Gardens! This was the summer home of Frederick Ferris and Mary Clark Thompson. You can read all about the history **Here** .

Hubby and I went there this past weekend for a Art Show. We took a Garden Tour, the Mansion Tour and enjoyed the Art Show. I haven't been to Sonnenberg Gardens in years. The history buff in me was excited.

Even the quilter in me was excited !

And the gardener...

For more information visit

I am planning to return there when the leaves change color. Hope you enjoyed our brief tour.

Thanks for the tour and great pictures. I went to the art show as well and wished I had taken my camera with me. I ran out of steam before getting to the mansion. Next time I'll go there for sure.
