The best time of day is early am or just before sunset.
First, we pick a date.
I have a private garden available May 9-October 1. Located: Westport, MA
Field of Tall Grass: Est. Available May 23-June 14
Buttercup: Est. May 24-June 2
Queen Anne's Lace: Est. August 9-August 25
There's always a field available, they're just not always lush, and tall.
If you want it to be warm, possibly go in: May-September
I have a preference for December+ Early January when it's not quite freezing, it hasn't snowed, the woods are bare, the light is brilliant, and the colors just pop...very inspirational!
