mother's day at the haskell nursery

after moving ourselves to newport with the help of my uncle rob (who i think could win survivor seeing that he has more energy than my pathetic 33 year old self) brother matt, and a 26 foot penske truck we thought it was time to leave the boxes at home and go have some fun. so josh planned for us to head to the haskell nursery in new bedford, ma. on mother's day. we had been there twice before the girls were born, but were excited to see how they would like it. it was a beautiful day and it was just as i remembered...a 7 acre sanctuary of greenhouses, topiaries, plants, chickens, and historic buildings that stirs the spirituality inside of you. feels like a museum. allen haskell, the famous horticulturist started the business almost 50 years ago, and his son, david now presides over it. martha stewart and jacqueline kennedy onassis are said to have been patrons. if you are in the area, you should definitely check it out.
