On a tiny little road there is a simple red cottage that was at one time a worker’s home in the early 1790”s. As with most residences here, additions and plantings have been added over the last 200 years so that today, there appears to be a phantom shade garden that seems to have magically enveloped a sprawling cottage.
I have passed the cottage many times and recently asked if I could feature the garden here for all of you to enjoy. The owner has spent many years planting and perfecting so that the garden appears to be in a natural state of reckless abandon. In fact all has been carefully planned to look perfectly imperfect (my favorite type of garden). I’ll walk you through it as if you were here with me!
