Re: Boston area

Thank you all for the ideas. The Glass Flowers is an exhibit I've wanted to see for years. I'll definitely be checking maps to fit in some gardens. I may contact some local club members and ask if they're planning any garden tours, then I'll know which ones to see on my own. They have historical site visits planned. We're going to stay an extra 3 days, we can revisit some if we wish.

I would suggest the Arnold Arboretum if you are into woodies - it is
the oldest public arboretum in the US. Mount Auburn Cemetery is one
of the first examples of the "garden cemetery" movement. If you can
drive some 25 miles southwest of Boston, the "Garden in the Woods" in
Framingham has the largest collection of wildflowers and native
plants in the Northeast. It is owned by the New England Wildflower

Judy, do try to see the fabulous glass flowers at Harvard's museum -
can't remember the exact name.  They are an incredible accomplishment.
