When traveling, it is the kindness of strangers that lingers. Around the world, cultures vary and yet the people, art, music, landscapes, and food, in some unknown way, hold us all together as one on this planet. Whether traveling in your backyard or across the globe, the kindness of strangers is present everywhere.

Upcoming Destinations

Join us in Autumn and tour Boston, back roads of Vermont, and coastal Cape Ann. Lighthouses, mountain roads, lobsters, and history all blend together for a memorable tour when fall foliage is at its best from my perspective as a New Englander.



For those who read our last newsletter, I mentioned our Tulum Winter Wellness Escape which is now online for your reservations. It's time to relax amidst the Caribbean tropical colors and culture of Mexico. Our groups are small and space is limited. Reserve now for a New Year wellness break.

My garden is a bit wild and I like to think of it as mostly an untamed English Cottage Garden. Our cottage is stone.....so that helps......we have lots of deer who adore gourmet plantings. Alliums to the rescue. The deer will not eat them. On our English Garden Tour, I learned that alliums are not only purple and white but also a heavenly shade of provencal blue.   Allium caeruleum is a perfect compliment with the yellow blossoms of ladies mantle... peonies, Japanese, and variegated iris. This year, at The Chelsea Flower Show, the Allium Purple Sensation caught my eye. I am going to mix it in lots of them with the variegated purple iris for next summer. Dreaming of what may be is always fun.....traveling to England in May for the annual Chelsea Flower Show and tour of English Gardens is a perennial favorite........


Found this lovely note when cleaning out my files this week. It was tucked away from a dear traveler who celebrated her 50th with us in Ireland. Here are her kind words...

Dear Peggy 
What a wonderful surprise to receive the photo book of our trip to Ireland. I don't have enough time to describe the lovely time I had.
Meeting 5 ladies with such diverse life experiences and getting to know them over the course of a week has enriched me life. I will treasure those moments always.

I need to compliment you on the thoughtful preparation and the constant attention to ensure a fabulous vacation experience. I felt so at ease and so blessed. You've set a very high standard. I hope to be able to take more trips with you.

Have a great summer. And, until we meet again, may God richly bless you and your family

Best wishes
