Celebrate spring at this beautiful thirty-three acre estate on Narragansett Bay with a spectacular display of more than 50,000 daffodils. Blithewold is one of the finest garden estates in New England with diverse gardens and a 45-room English style manor house. Blithewold is located on Narragansett Bay, 25 minutes east of Providence and 60 minutes south of Boston. It was named in Yankee Magazine’s Best Five Public Gardens in New England.
A walk among the daffodils at Laurel Ridge Foundation is a rare early spring outing in an unspoiled oasis. The wild natural landscape of gently sloping woodland, fields and aged stonewalls overlooks a small lake dotted with two tiny islands. The park land and one of the islands is completely carpeted with gold and white blossoms, a glorious sight that is nirvana for photographers.
