a nice garden in a nice town

As I walked around Chesley, I peered over the bridge on the opposite side to the little park I showed last week and found a lovely garden that just begged to be explored.

I wasn't quite sure what to make of it, but the sign invited to enjoy...








I now know that this is 

The former grist mill and farm co-op has been converted to an events hall with apartments on the upper level
looking back towards the bridge
there is a mill pond, with swans
flowers
and a babbling brook
walkways
and fountains
as well as bits of whimsy











all of which I may not have chanced upon had I found a restaurant as was my original plan!
