Mosaic Monday: Architect's Garden, Part II








It seems like so long ago that I started writing about the Architect's Garden, which I visited this summer as part of the Garden Conservancy's Open Days program.  Here is part two of my posts.  I still have more photos from this amazing garden -- maybe next week.  :)

When the current owners bought the land, it was the site of a dairy farm.  They renovated the barns to create an original and beautiful home, and laid out several acres of gardens, using stone walls, gravel and box hedges to delineate several garden rooms.  I would love to see the garden in winter.  I suspect that it is quite beautiful, even without flowers.  As we wandered through, I couldn't resist taking some pictures of the tools that were scattered around.  They, too, have a certain beauty all their own.

For my blogging friends in the United States, I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!  :)

Here are the instructions to join today's post:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post. The post may be about any subject you wish. The only stipulation is that it include a collage, or mosaic of photos.
2. Once it is published, click on the title of the post. This will lead you to the static link for your post. The static link is the page with only that post on it. Copy the url from your browser at the top of the page.
3. Paste the url into the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
4. Type your name in the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
5. Click on "Enter."
6. Please link back to this Mosaic Monday post so that your readers can find other wonderful mosaics.


That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline.net

And a quick reminder: if you would like to join Mosaic Monday but don't know quite where to start, there is a tutorial on mosaic-making on my sidebar. Just scroll down, and click on the small blue mosaic.

  8. Hi Mary -- a lovely tour indeed (and I love the tools in all their utilitarian beauty). It is no wonder it seems like last summer seems a long time ago -- you've had quite a bit of excitement since then. I'm so glad you weathered the storm more or less intact and I thank you again for the work you do in hosting this meme -- and for your beautiful pictures.
