Here’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.
The large greenhouse was being used by small scale farmers’ market growers.
The garden decor was whimsical.
This 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.
The 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.
It was even nicer to be offered a piece of pizza, made by the owner, in his wood-burning pizza oven.
And here’s a close-up of that oven. Gorgeous. Like the rest of the garden.
