Pickity Place is located in Mason, New Hampshire. Our friends Ted and
Diana introduced us to this exquisite jewel. It is best known for
the 1786 cottage that became "Grandmother's House" in Little Red
Riding Hood. A gourmet meal can be had here, and judging by the filled
to capacity parking lot, I would say that it must be a good deal.
For me, the attraction is the flowers. Pickity Place occupies over five
acres of gardens. The perennial beds are beautiful and the herb gardens
are bountiful. The large number of bees seen pollinating the beds of lavender
and other sweet smelling flowers, is mind boggling. The lilies and poppies
are eye popping. The best part is the gardens are FREE.
Below are some photographs I took 30 July 98.

This little frog was photographed in a small frog pond near
the flowers. To see how the photo was altered from the original, check out the next page.
