Not sure where to start when describing the once private estate of George Gough Booth and Ellen Scripps Booth. I spent a couple of peaceful hours in the gardens which surround the estate house. The educational community which sits on 319 acres in Bloomfield Hills, is comprised of Cranbrook Schools, Cranbrook Academy of Art, Cranbrook Art Museum, Cranbrook Institute of Science and Cranbrook House and Gardens. You may read about this wondrous facility here. I live less than 3 miles away, and always kick myself for not visiting regularly as there is so much to see and do.
Here is a small sampling of what awaits you at Cranbrook.
Look what I found at the little gift shop attached to the house
A sweet gardening apron which I shall use when I am communing with nature. It has three large pockets to hold my camera, notebook and pen, phone, wallet and anything else I need at the ready. I love it! The perfect ending to a lovely outing. So glad you could join me!
