Woodland Winter Greens

woodland winter greens

I love the bold greens in the woods in winter – a constant reminder that spring is just around the corner.  Ravenswood Park is a beautiful place to walk, thanks to the generosity of Samuel E. Sawyer.   In 1889, Sawyer’s will created Ravenswood Park which he named after the castle in Sir Walter Scott’s The Bride of Lammermoor.  We also have Samuel Sawyer to thank for the Gloucester Lyceum and Sawyer Free Library as much of the funding for the library came from him.  Samuel Elwell Sawyer was born in Gloucester on November 25, 1815 and died in Gloucester on December 15, 1889, at the age of 73.
