I spent a day at the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont this past weekend. Shelburne Museum is one of my favorite museums. It contains both art and Americana.

Hat and Fragrance Garden at Shelburne Museum
There are over 150,000 works that are exhibited in 39 exhibition buildings, 25 of which are historic and were relocated to the Museum grounds from other places in New England and New York. I have been to the Shelburne Museum dozens of times and look forward to each and every visit. I’ll have a whole post up soon showcasing a few of my favorite things but for now, I will whet your appetite with this gorgeous garden in front of the Hat and Textile Building.
If you’re familiar with fragrance gardens, you may recognize some of the plants and herbs that were traditionally used to make fragrances back before our fragrances were made with chemicals. The purple flower in the background is lavender. The red flower in the back is monarda (or bee balm). I also noticed tansy and feverfew in the garden as well.
