Spohr Gardens

IMG_1046One of the rites of spring in Falmouth is a visit to Spohr Gardens for Daffodil Days. Truthfully, the gardens are at their most bucolic, peaceful and beautiful on non-event days, and thanks to a charitable trust, they are open year round, but somehow, it wouldn’t be spring around here without a visit to the daffodils.

You have to marvel at the generosity and foresight of people who would set up a trust that would benefit so many. The dictates of the Margaret K. Spohr and Charles D. Spohr Charitable Trust opened their six acre garden on Oyster Pond to the public. According to the trust, no admission can be charged. Tax deductible donations are accepted however, and a volunteer organization, Friends of Spohr Gardens, provides the support needed to keep things going.

Words really can’t do justice to the beauty of these gardens. You wander rather than walk as you travel the paths past riots of flowers down to the water’s edge. Hectic doesn’t live here. Peace pervades.
