Did I save the best for last? That depends on your taste
in gardens. Each property we visited on this tour was unique.
The charming English country garden with the 1812 home;
the posh estate with acres of grounds and formal gardens;
and this last one—-which you’ll have to agree is unique.
We drove way out into the “boonies” to find a mid-century
house midst the tall trees of dense woods. The owner cleared
70 trees to make a large space for his “prairie” garden.
As you surely have noticed, the sun was so bright on our tour
day that the camera could hardly cope with the light. I have a
few shots to show you–for the flavor of the garden in late
June–but then, so that you’ll have a truly wonderful time
with this garden, I’ll send you to the owner’s website:
Weeds? not in this giant garden—there wouldn’t be one
brave enough to muscle into these tall statuesque wonders.
It’s more like walking through a meadow than a garden–with
some plants taller than me (I). And still, there are “rest
areas” with a bench to contemplate the scene.
