Heaven & Earth

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

 

Start the day in Boylston, where the Worcester County Horticultural Society operates one of the state’s largest gardens, Tower Hill Botanic Garden on 132 acres.  Enjoy a guided tour with Tower Hill’s knowledgeable guides, stroll the gardens and woodland trails, and watch the interaction of plants and animals in the Wildlife Garden's "Birdhouse for people" viewing station. Browse The Shop at Tower Hill for unique gifts, plants and books.

 

Enjoy a delicious & hearty full lunch at the popular Irish-American restaurant, O'Connor's Restaurant

 

Then it’s on to the unique and fascinating Museum of Russian Icons.  What is an Icon?  A beautiful piece of artwork made by an iconographer (the Apostle Luke is credited as original!), made in strict standards according to the church and often blessed by a priest, an icon is an image used to help the faithful become more Christian in their life, behavior and attitude.  Not just important in faithful life, these finely crafted & detailed pieces are simply breathtaking!  In addition to the largest collection of Russian Icons in North America, the museum also hosts world renowned traveling art exhibits from all genres. Our knowledge docent will give us a tour of the museum to explain the history of the museum and their artwork.
