"Blithewold, located in Bristol, RI, is 33 acres of lawns, gardens, specimen trees, and historic stone structures. In 1895, Augustus Van Wickle and his wife, Bessie Pardee Van Wickle, purchased 70 acres of waterfront land in Bristol, RI and named it Blithewold (Old English for "happy woodland"). They built a large, Queen Anne style mansion, and moved in during the summer of 1896. They would reside at Blithewold from May until November. Bessie hired John DeWolf, Bristol landscape architect and Superintendent of Prospect Park, New York City, to help implement her vision of a horticultural sanctuary. "
"The sweeping 10 acre Great Lawn and its views to Narragansett Bay is the perfect setting for over 500 different kinds of trees and shrubs. Taking full advantage of the stunning water views and country setting, Landscape Architect John DeWolf designed the landscape starting in the mid 1890s, in an informal style with touches of formal elements."

On Monday, June 7, the Needham High School (MA) Class of 2010 graduated. Due to time and space constraints a limited number of photographs are published. Going through my files I decided to make a short multi-media presentation of the event mixing a few of the published photos with some, I liked, but that did not make publication. The skies were threatening. I felt a few rain drops but graduation went on without a hitch and with a toss of their caps the Class of 2010 was on their way

According to the Sherborn Historical Society "Richard Smart was a Civil War veteran and carpenter. He had been a resident of Brighton (MA) prior to moving to Sherborn. Before Smart built the house there, the lot had been owned by the Flaggs across the street and divided into three lots by stonewalls." On Tuesday, June 22, the Richard Smart house was demolished. Built as a Victorian, renovations in the 1960s included the "front bay and piazzas removed and the front colonialized." The property situated next to town hall comprises about 2.5 acres and was acquired, by the town, for about $500,000.
