Dale’s Garden Day and Night

Any time of the day, this garden is gorgeous

We’ve been to Sutton, Massachusetts, to visit Dale Coulter’s stunning garden before (Dale’s Greenhouse and Garden), and it is always a pleasure to visit it again!

unique greenhouse with yellow flowers in frontThis marvelous greenhouse, made primarily from reclaimed materials, is a highlight of the garden. It is both a functional and a beautiful piece of architectural art in the garden.

white flowers towering over pink flowersAn incredible stand of huge white lilies (Lilium sp., Zones 5–9) makes a commanding performance in the middle of this bed. I bet the scent is mind-blowing.

    I remember seeing it on the last post, but now seeing it in the evening with the excellent garden lighting is a whole new experience!
    The moon ornament really compliments the night garden!
