It is hard to pick a favorite garden room on this property, but one that many might, is the area of the pond. Many moisture loving plants surround the pond and as you will notice, a rock garden gives some height to this space.
Primrose, Azalea, Rhododendron, iris and viburnum are all in bloom here in May. Many of the plants in this garden are specialty plants since Mr. Cresson is a collector. If you ever get to meet him, he is a warm and generous individual. He is so knowledgeable on plants, and as a designer, I was listening to every word.
Click through these galleries and you just might get some ideas for your own property. He has a great sense of how to use hardscape elements. Look at the walls, fences and red bridge. Notice how this pond blends seamlessly into the landscape and is enveloped by the plants that surround it. It really becomes a destination and exudes sense of place.
Next, I have images from around the house. There is a completely different feel to the spaces around the home.
On Nature and Wildlife Pics, a bird you may have not seen before. I am not telling you what it is, so go have a look!
