First of all, thank you SO MUCH to all of you who participated in Mosaic Monday yesterday. I was thrilled to have so many participants for the first week, and I LOVED seeing all your wonderful mosaics!
I hope you all had as much fun as I did, and that you will join us again next week. Tell your friends, too. The more the merrier!
If anyone else would like to join but needs instructions on making a mosaic, drop me an email at mrcarroll(at)optonline(dot)net.
I wanted to show you a few photos from The Garden Conservancy Open Day I attended on Saturday. These photos are from Kennelston Cottage in Far Hills, NJ. Not really a cottage at all, but an English Tudor style house built in the early 1900's. Kennelston is a series of garden rooms, many organized along axial lines. The two photos above show the ornamental potager, with it's very formal design.
This beautiful bank of early perennials surrounds the pool. Don't you love the allium and iris? Blues and purples are my favorite garden colors.
Finally, here is the courtyard garden. These photos really do not do it justice. This garden is SO beautiful! I have some more photos to show you tomorrow, of a wonderful sunken garden.
