A favorite for both proximity and diversity of sights, Bayard Cutting Arboretum (440 Montauk Hwy, Great River, 631-581-1002) is also part of the NYS parks system. This charming-in-all-seasons property ambles along the Connetquot River. There is a little cafe in the mansion that serves tea and lunch fare. The Dahlia Garden behind the Cornell Extension Division buildings remains a treasure to visit each summer from approximately late July until mid-October.
The Pinetum is a favorite stroll path any time of year.
Manicured garden beds abound.
Cornell Extension Division Farm. I understand they have a CSA program, too!
I'll have to give the Dahlia garden blooms a post of their own in the future. But here are a couple to send you off with some cheer!
