In less than three weeks, one of my favorite places on Long Island reopens, Old Westbury Gardens. Unfortunately throughout the winter the garden is closed which is a shame since I’m sure the grounds are absolutely picture perfect when the snow falls. I plan on being there as soon as the gates open on Saturday, April 2. The above photo is from one of my favorite spots inside the Walled Garden from opening weekend last spring. If I could I would sit on that bench and spend the day reading a good book.
