Visiting My Summer House Garden

The sunken garden behind my Summer House is brimming with vibrant foliage.

I began this formal garden more than 10 years ago and have added many different kinds of plants and trees ever since. The focal point is the great old ginkgo tree at the back of the space that was original to the property. Over time, I've planted American and English boxwood, smaller ginkgo trees, smoke bushes, Siberian weeping pea shrubs, peonies, hostas, lilies, and so much more. I am so pleased with how well it has developed.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
