One of the first gardens I entered. Set up as a pottager garden.

Lily Jacobi shares highlights with us from her favorite garden conservancy tour in 2016.

"Last weekend we had open garden days from the garden conservancy here in New Hampshire, I had the opportunity to visit six Gardens, but this one was the best one in my opinion. These photos are from the Gardens at Juniper Hill Farm, Francistown New Hampshire. What I really loved about it was that there was so much of the homeowners personality expressed throughout the various garden spaces."

Another favorite was an area called the "Stump Garden". Very creative use and placement of these normally thrown away items!

I very much enjoyed this particular portal into a new space and the use of stumps on top of and around the entryway.

The use of this shade of blue and the creative form of the fence is very pleasing to me.

Color, form and texture at its best! 

The Angelica really pops and provides a nice contrast in its surroundings.

This piece really captured my heart and touched my soul. Such a simple construct, but very elegant, refined and humble.

A simple garden structure looking out on a pond. I sat in it for a few minutes to enjoy the view.
