Today’s photo is from  Sally Muspratt in West Roxbury, Massachusetts. She says, “I designed this garden to create beautiful reflections in “Mirrorstone,” Adam Frelin‘s simple stainless steel column. It sits on a mossy mound surrounded by a rectangular pool of blue-green Canadian ginger and lacy maiden hair fern. The shape of the sculpture is repeated in the adjoining terrace. This tiny garden  (60′ x 30’) requires very little care, but its strong concept based on the form of the sculpture creates a magical retreat.” Thanks, Sally, for sharing this with us!

    Gorgeous. You don't get to see enough modern and minimal sculpture in the garden.
