Continued from yesterday...
Backroads wander through hidden parts of the Huntington property, unfolding the story of those who lived there a hundred years ago and of those who live there now.
This old, stone culvert begins at the northern end of the unused acres. Huntington decent docent Karin and I passed it early in our ramble. Next came expensive private homes, lining the fence just outside the property. Through thick foliage we glimpsed tennis courts, gazebos and private gardens. It would be abusing my privilege to show them to you. People pay a lot of money to live exclusively, and I'm not that kind of blogger. (But I enjoyed my glimpses.)
I thought you'd like another flower shot. The place is rife with wildflowers.
At the southern end of the property we found the other end of the culvert. At least I think it was the same one. It appeared outside the most exclusive home of all. There's a grounds-keeper's cottage--not really a cottage, but a lovely home, very private. Can you imagine?--being able to wander the grounds alone in the midst of all this glory?
