Les Quatre Vents – The view on the other side

Yesterday we promised you the view on the other side of that scary rope bridge. Here it is! (note: this is not the view from the bridge…you can see the bridge in the top of the first photo) A traditional Japanese tea house partially surrounded by a serene pond.

**All last week and this week, we’ve been featuring photos of the gardens at Les Quatre Vents, the home of Frank and Anne Cabot in Quebec. If you’d like read more about this garden, check out this interview with Frank Cabot that ran in the April 2005 issue of Fine Gardening. Frank also wrote a book about the garden. You can get it on Amazon here.**

    A neighbor is creating a Japanese garden in his yard and I'm fascinated by the planning involved. Now I see the amazing results that he's working on! These pictures take me away...

    I am dying to put in a serene Japanese tea house and garden but after all the flooding we've had my husband thinks I'm crazy. This is just so lovely, so calming, such an inspiration!
