We’re going to visit a special place, a wonderful garden managed by New England Wildflower Society called Garden in the Woods in Framingham, MA. If you’ve never been there, you are in for a treat! If you have been there, you want to go back. The garden features native plants and boasts ecological land care practices and design.
