Many years ago, I had the great privilege of working at Stonecrop Gardens, a small and wonderful public garden in upstate New York that was started by Frank and Anne Cabot in 1992. Frank is also the person who founded the Garden Conservancy, an organization dedicated to preserving noteworthy gardens. I’m a huge fan of the Cabots, not only for their efforts on behalf of gardening, but also for how warm and genuine they were throughout the time I knew them.
The Cabots make their permanent home in Quebec at a stunning property they call Les Quatre Vents. While I never had the opportunity to visit this spectacular garden myself, one of our former editors, Virginia Small, did, and her interview with Frank Cabot was in the April 2005 issue of Fine Gardening. For the next couple of weeks, I’ll feature some photos from that interview, as well as a few that wouldn’t fit into the pages of the magazine.
Today’s photos are of what is probably the most photographed portion of the garden – the pigeonnier and its stunning reflection.
Want to learn more about Les Quatre Vents? Read the book! And stay tuned for more photos tomorrow.
