Views of the Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden

With the close of the year the cycle again is complete. The earliest twilight has been reached and we enjoy the long hours by the fireside. The unforgettable fragrance of burning wood, these merry evenings are gone all too soon. How pleasant the isolating peace of snow and the beauty of trees and bush covered with sparkling ice. It is a country of whiteness accented by the dark evergreens. Former Curator Martha Crone
