Chanticleer Two of Twelve Teacup Garden

The Teacup and Entry Gardens

The house was built for Emily Rosengarten, sister of Adolf Rosengarten, Jr., but is now used as an administration building for the estate. This is the first building you see as you enter and I pictured the front of it in the last post.

Plants are all around this structure in traditional beds and nicely proportioned borders. Many vining plants grace the walls and support structures.

The teacup, pictured below, gives the garden its name. It is a fountain thought to have come from Florence in 1920. It was originally located on the terrace behind the Chanticleer House, overlooking the pool area. You will see the pool in Chanticleer Four of Twelve, the Pool. The Chanticleer House is in the post Chanticleer Three of twelve, up next.

A lower courtyard, steps down from the Teacup Garden.

Entries are grand.

Borders are colorful.

Where next, oh I just made mention.

    I love that garden bed that has the strange looking vines going up the wall behind it. It has such a great mix of foliage and textures! The vines are very odd looking to me, though..
    Looks like a gorgeous place to visit!

  4. Beautiful! I had to google the location. It looks sort of English to me.
