Complete with sweeping views and a garden that focuses on plants in the pink, purple and blue families, highlights of "Pondfield," in York, Maine, are perfectly captured by our dedicated GPOD'er, Lily Jacobi.
"This was the second garden I visited on a cold, gray, rainy garden conservancy open day. The welcome table was within a garage, and we were told to step into the courtyard to see the front of the house, and then walk through the closed gate to the back of the house. Imagine my surprise when I walked into the courtyard at the front of the house and discovered this vibrant display of red and yellow colored flowers popping up against a bright red house.
I was further astounded once I opened the gate and walked into the backyard. My jaw dropped. I stood there and gazed in wonderment and could not stop taking pictures. I was blown away."
