Planting Fields Arboretum: A visit in July

I loved Planting Fields Arboretum so much when visiting last August that I took another trip to explore it in July.  My plan is to eventually visit every month between May and September.  Every time it is a whole new show and all so beautiful!  Planting Fields is located on the north shore of Long Island, New York in the town of Oyster Bay. The grounds are the former home of William Robertson Coe and his wife Mary (Mai) Huttleston Coe in 1913. Planting Fields retains its original historic buildings and landscapes and can be visited year round.










  









  
Hope you enjoyed the visit!

As Always...Happy Gardening!
