Yaddo Gardens – Saratoga Springs, NY

On our way back from Sarataga Springs, NY we stopped at the Yaddo Gardens.  Just one more of the amazing places to see in Saratoga Springs, the Yaddo Gardens is GORGEOUS.  There is also a huge mansion that has functioned as a private artist retreat since the 1920s.  The gardens are open to the public and mid-June was the perfect time to visit.

The roses are in peak bloom.

The sculptures are tasteful and elegant.

I think my favorite part was this great hall of climbing roses.  The smell was heavenly.

There is also a more woodsy section of the gardens.  Plenty of ferns and water features and pine needle paths.
