FALMOUTH – It is always nice to visit Spohr Gardens, the six-acre parcel along Oyster Pond that is known, especially, for its glorious spring flowers.
But it is not yet spring and so we found ourselves focusing on the 13 historic anchors rest atop the retaining wall of Oyster Pond.
The anchors were the collection of Charles Spohr, who was intrigued by anchors and started collecting small anchors as a chlld.
One of the anchors, it is said, was supposedly made for the HMS Bounty. But the anchor was made incorrectly and never left shore. That anchor, the oldest one of the collection at Spohr Gardens, was made in 1760.
We liked how the light danced off the frozen water with anchors, along with an old bell, in the foreground.
