Another great garden

IMG_8725Here’s another interesting garden from the Gardens by the Sea tour I took recently in Charlestown, RI. One of the great things about this tour is the diversity of the gardens. Each one feels so different from the others. This garden is very large, and rambles around the house and outbuildings, which, I understand, the owners built themselves.

IMG_8728The large greenhouse was being used by small scale farmers’ market growers.

IMG_8744The garden decor was whimsical.

IMG_8753Very whimsical.

IMG_8742This garden spreads and sprawls. Edibles and ornamentals grow side by side. It is by no means messy, though. Just not as controlled as other gardens we visited.

IMG_8745The path eventually brought us here, to this charming scene. It was nice to sit in a shady place for a moment and enjoy a glass of lemonade.

IMG_8747It was even nicer to be offered a piece of pizza, made by the owner, in his wood-burning pizza oven.

IMG_8749And here’s a close-up of that oven. Gorgeous. Like the rest of the garden.
