Today's photos are from Bob Murray, who says, "Twelve years ago we outgrew the plantings on our existing property and so decided to start fresh. We bought a 3-acre wooded lot in Glastonbury, Connecticut, selectively cleared it, and then began building our gardens and house. Since the property is on a slope we had to terrace it and that led to the creation of a sunken Japanese garden with pools and ponds at the base. The woods in front of the house became a woodland garden filled with exotic shade plants. We now have 2 acres of perennials and exotic trees. We take great pleasure in opening our gardens to garden clubs throughout the Northeast. For the last seven years we have also participated in the Garden Conservancy Open Days Program. On September 8 our gardens will be open from 10 to 4 PM as part of their fall Open Days. We invite all of your readers in the area to come by. For directions go to gardenconservancy.org/opendays." So green, restful, and serene, Bob! I think we need LOTS more photos...... Gorgeous!
