Tower Hill Botanic Garden sits on 132 acres in Boylston, Massachusetts, the heart of the Wachusett Valley.
Beautiful garden spaces and miles of trails attract everyone from casual gardeners to horticulture students year-round.
About 100,000 visitors came through last year to soak it all in.
And it's not just the plant life connecting guests to nature.
From now until Aug. 2, Susan Valentine's paintings adorn the walls of the visitors center. They're large-scale works with impressive detail.
