The Best 5
This stunning seaside setting merges historic and modern gardening. Rose, rock, and water gardens, specimen trees, and a woodland (“the Bosquet”). A popular site for weddings.
–Yankee Magazine, July/August 2010

Nothing heralds spring like a blaze of daffodils. For the grand flourish, there’s the 33-acre magnificence of Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum, on the shores of sparkling Narragansett Bay in Bristol, Rhode Island. Blithewold’s “Bosquet,” a shady grove of trees and 50,000 daffodils, is a sunstorm of yellow, white, and orange blooms, dappled with light and offset by newly sprung red and orange tulips on the border of the sweeping, 10-acre “Great Lawn.”
