Scenery: Birch Alley in May (Stan Hywet, Akron, OH)

This is called the Birch Alley. It is an arrow-straight aisle of birches, with lilies of the valley at their feet. In May, the fragrance is intoxicating.

It is part of the stunning gardens of Stan Hywet, a Tudor Revival country estate in Akron, OH. It was built in the early 1900's by rubber industrialist F. A. Seiberling. It is now a National Historic Landmark. Stan Hywet is Old English for "stone quarry".
