One of the first neat places I came across in Wentworth was the Shin-Boku Nursery.  To highlight their design skills and featured trees, they have created a stroll garden. I had the grounds all to myself that morning and spent quite a while immersed in the peacefulness which comes from a Japanese style garden. Walk with me…
















The intricacy and beauty of the stone lanterns was stunning. I wished I had packed a lunch to give me a reason to stay just a little longer. I didn’t walk over to the nursery, but I could see it across the field…


As I was leaving, I made a promise to myself to try to put a bit of serenity into my own gardens. Another peaceful place I found was the shores of Lower Baker Pond…


There are several reservoirs in Wentworth and each was quiet and beautiful…






Many of the towns I’ve visited have had a particular “feel”, whether it be patriotic, welcoming, quaint or historic. It felt to me, Wentworth was all about peace and harmony with nature…


Historic barns and the church only added to the feel…

An old barn with grass in front and a forest behind it. Photographed in Wentworth, New Hampshire in the spring. Landscape orientation.





When I got to Wentworth Village, I spent some time in the park just below Baker Falls…




After I took my pictures, I kicked off my shoes and walked along the rivers edge. The cool water brought some welcome relief from the heat of the day. I was just getting ready to pack up when a young man and his canine companions stopped by for a little afternoon game of fetch…




If relaxation and serenity is what you are seeking, you need to spend some time in Wentworth!

Would you rather have lunch at the stroll garden or the park?

    I agree The feel is very much peacefulness. Beautiful gardens but I have to say my top pick from your gallery is the dog with his oversized stick. I’ll be happy with lunch anywhere. 🙂

      The dogs were having a blast. I’m thinking morning coffee in the garden and lunch in the park and glass of wine in the garden after dinner!

        Excellent plan! I’m in. 🙂

    Pretty garden. But I also love the barn and church. Great shots of a neat little town.

      Thank you. I’ve yet to keep my promise to myself of bringing in a bit of serenity to my own garden, but soon.

    I think I’d rather see the park. I like waterfalls that are easy to get to.
    All through this post I was thinking “Wentworth by the Sea” but that turned out to be a fancy hotel.

      Yep, different Wentworth, but named for the same person. And don’t forget Wentworth Location, an unincorporated place I visited last year. I loved the garden!

    That garden is lovely.

    As always, Laura, your shot of the water flowing over the rocks is gorgeous! I always think of it as one of your trademarks. 🙂 ~Terri

      Thank you Terri, I’m working on a waterfall calendar right now. Hope to have it done in the next few weeks.
