Nancy Bellaire shares photos from the White Flower Farm in Connecticut.

"These are pictures of the Lloyd Border at White Flower Farm in Connecticut. It's named for the late Christopher Lloyd, a great English gardener and author. The border was designed by Fergus Garrett, head gardener at Lloyd's estate, Great Dixter. The border is 280 feet long and 20 feet wide and is composed of perennials, shrubs, grasses, annuals, and tender perennials. It is bordered by a slate walk and a hedge of European Beech provides the backdrop for the flowers. Dazzling color came from sunflowers, cannas, dahlias, and marigolds. Unusual  plants like castor bean added to the drama of the border as well as the bold blue grasses. Magnificent and used plants most of us can grow!"
