Hillwood Estate and Gardens

This montage of photos from our Traveling Herb Seminar this past September highlights the Hillwood Estate Museum and Gardens, the home of cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post. She designed this home and garden to remain a museum and their aptly named slogan is "Where fabulous lives". The outside gardens have many "rooms" including a Japanese garden, a Russian area, a putting green, cutting gardens, quiet areas to sit and relax or visit and so much more. The inside of the home features an amazing collection of Imperialistic Russian Art and 18th C French Art and furnishings. This museum is well worth the visit if you are in Washington DC.
Many thanks to our friend JP for taking these photos and sharing them with us!
