a little out of order here, but this was the second stop on the birthday tour. the sedgwick estate at longwood is the beautiful hill-side property of ellery sedgwick, the former Atlantic publisher and editor. though the sedgwick’s are long gone the estate still thrives. I laid in the grass to take that last pic of the bleeding hearts, and i could probably have stayed there the rest of the day if eric didn’t drag me off to our next engagement. i will have to go back this summer to see the estate in its next seasonal evolution; i can practically smell the peonies.
