My Garden

Copyright Lillian Stokes 2009

This is a photograph taken of my garden from our bedroom window last August. The garden is about a half of an acre and is situated on a hill. It is terraced on three levels. The top level opens up to the street and has a rather hot color scheme. I think of it as a garden designed for the pleasure of the passer by. The middle level is enclosed by a yew hedge and has a grey color theme (it is the garden in Lillian's photograph). It has a view of Mt. Monadnock in the distance and opens out from the terrace and is private. The lower garden is very much a work in progress and will be a "wild garden". It is composed of woodland plants that feel as if they belong in New England but are not necessarily native plants.


  1. Hi, I'm Sigrun from Germany and found your blog just in the moment. Your garden looks nicely, like the gardens you show us. I often visit gardens from friends and public gardens, most in Britain, which I love.


  2. Hi Sigrun!
    I am so happy you found my blog. I have been very fortunate to visit many inspirational gardens both here and in Europe. I'm looking forward to visiting your blog.
