"The garden sits on 1 3/4 acres in a woodland setting. Fir trees surround the periphery and enclose a garden of deciduous trees, shrubs, perennial borders, interlocking pools, a white woodland garden, and an enclosed kitchen garden. This mature garden has all-season interest."
Notice the Magnolia macrophylla on the left. This is actually just a part of the tree which seems small compared to the huge Doug firs but is actually quite a large and beautiful specimen.
Standing under the canopy of the magnolia was quite a treat!
Looking over at the two huge circular ponds.
The Brewers use empty pots as focal points throughout the garden. I've tried this but usually end up sticking a plant in the pots.
Two pools, two Trachycarpus fortunei. The red pot fountain in the middle of one adds a bit of asymmetry. The enclosure for the kitchen garden can be seen on the right.
Little and Lewis pieces are a highlight.
I especially liked these!
Inside the kitchen garden. Please forgive the photos, it was a bright afternoon and the light was awful for taking pictures.
Swell greenhouse. Notice the leaded glass panel atop the door.
Inside the greenhouse.
There's nothing quite like Little and Lewis columns, this one supporting an interesting pot.
These creating an arbor.
The path through the arbor leads to a lower woodland garden with a sweet area for relaxing in the woods.
Coming back up the path, a view of the enclosed kitchen garden.
Beautiful peaceful borders on this side of the house.
One last look at the big pools.
I had the joy of running into blogging friend, Tatyana (My Secret Garden) here. Such a pleasure to see her! Her happy countenance and energy are infectious! As the days are getting shorter, the temperatures colder, it's nice to look back on a warm summer day.
