Window Views #6



Coe Hall at Planting Fields Arboretum, New York (Long Island's Gold Coast)

Welcome to Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park, Long Island’s premier public arboretum and historic site located in Oyster Bay, New York. A former Gold Coast estate, the arboretum is comprised of 409 acres of greenhouses, rolling lawns, formal gardens, woodland paths, and outstanding plant collections. The original historic estate buildings remain including the 65 room Tudor Revival mansion, Coe Hall, which is open for tours spring through fall. The grounds, landscaped by the Olmsted Brothers of Brookline, Massachusetts, are spectacularly beautiful year round.

At Planting Fields, W.R. Coe was actively involved with developing and improving the collections of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, and hibiscus. Coe had a particular liking for new plant varieties and modern growing techniques. In this spirit, he deeded the estate to the State of New York in 1949.

Look carefully and you can see purple/pink rhododendrons through the window.

The two windows at the top overlook the entry hall of Coe Hall.

Mr. Linky is having trouble this week. Please leave a comment. And don't forget to visit other participants. :)

Mr. Linky's having problems for a couple of weeks now. I'm betting people will be looking for alternatives in not too very long.

But Linky or no linky, these windows are spectacular! Nice job!

I went with something much more prosaic...

Hey, I'm a tad late getting this up but come see some of the windows I took pictures of in German Village in Columbus, Ohio.

Mary, I love the stain glass window in your post this week. Stain glass always fascinates me. The time it must take to make them is astounding.

Sherrie said...

Hi Mary,
Beautiful windows! I really like that stained glass. It's really beautiful!! Mine is posted at my place, Sherrie's Stuff. Have a great day!


Mo and The Purries said...

The top picture reminds me of the window that Princess Buttercup was tossed out of at the end of Princess Bride!

With Mr. Linky still out of commission, I have a How-To post up at Manic Monday with the html code so bloggers can leave their blog URL as a link in a blog comment.
For this week's Window Views, Petey is LOL-ing it in the window at Purrchance To Dream and I have a (well it was funny to ME) humorous pic up at It's A Blog Eat Blog World.

Annie Jeffries said...

I love the reflected windows especially, in the bottom photo.

Here is my offering this week:

Fabulous view of the gardens! And lovely windows too. We love old windows with a real sense of history about them. We can't help but speculate on all they have gazed upon before.
