Suburban Girl: Oh Happy Day at Welkinweir

It was beautiful weather...a San Diego style day. 
It was National Public Gardens Day. 
It was spent with a Photo Friend. 
It was a day just for fun. 


We went to Welkinweir in Chester County, Pennsylvania. 

It was my first visit to Welkinweir...
and I am so glad I went there. 

The gardens are gorgeous this time of year  
and the birds are plentiful. 
(But I didn't take a lens for birds.) 

Welkinweir boasts 197 acres
of which there is a 55 acre arboretum 
and a beautiful old stone house. 

And thanks to my allergy shots...
I only sneezed once the WHOLE day. 
And I don't take allergy meds anymore. 
How awesome is that? 
I can finally enjoy spring. 

If you find yourself in the Chester/Berks/Montgomery county area...
stop in. 

It is worth the view. 

Welkinweir is located at 

1368 Prizer Road, Pottstown, PA 19465

How cute is that stone wall? 
I want one of those too.

Just like rustic wood, I am a fan of old stone anything. Looks like a great photo taking place, also just to wander.

Looks like you were there at a perfect time for delicate spring flowers. How beautiful! The stone wall is a charmer & reminds me a bit of the stone work in my home town in Wisconsin, which was settled by Germans who were wonderful at laying stone.
