Daytripping: The Mount
Edith Wharton was an American author around the beginning of the 20th century. She wrote novels and short stories, and she also wrote about garden design and interior design. In 1902 she built The Mount, an estate on 50 acres in rural Lenox, Massachusetts, to demonstrate her design principles. This photograph was taken from the Italian gardens behind the house.
Lenox is the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The Mount is open to the public.
