A garden that glows at night

Barbara Paul Robinson’s “moon garden” in her garden in Washington, Connecticut, is designed to be viewed from an upstairs bedroom window at dawn and dusk. Instead of the white blooms normally used in moon gardens, Barbara uses yellow. Glowing flowers and golden conifers with bold shapes in strong, geometrically-shaped beds stand out in the dark, while a trickling fountain brings the sounds of the night in through the window.  **This garden was featured in the October 2007 issue of Fine Gardening***

    Absolutely beautiful! One of the most important things to consider in my opinion is consideration of the view from different windows of your home. There are just too many hours when we can't be out there!

    Isn't this a view most of us would like to see first thing in the morning and the last thing at night. Great job!
