||This tiny city lot was transformed into a lush, English-style cottage garden. A romantic pergola/trellis covered with vines provides a backdrop for the abundant perennials, giving screening and privacy. The grassy oval provides a place to sit or entertain, a garden room tucked far away from the outside world.
Fragrant, old-fashioned plants mingle with the newest varieties, almost fulfilling the wish of this plant collector for "one of everything". A viburnum, lilac, Carol Mackie daphne, laburnum and fringe tree perfume the spring. Roses, hydrangeas and a multitude of colorful perennials provide ample blooms for cutting. In winter, a specimen Harry Lauder's Walking Stick and dwarf evergreens create a quiet scene, much different from the dancing colors of summer and fall.
