Nancy DeBellas's garden looks like pages out of a fairytale book.

"In early June our cottage garden is at its romantic best!  Roses, hardy geraniums, catmint, foxglove, valerian reach their blossoming peak, making a beautiful show.  My husband, John, and I have gardened at our home in Stony Brook, New York for 11 years now.  John designed the layout and built many of the structures, the split rail fence, arbor, and pergola, the tavern sign."
