I posted the other day about Meadowbrook Farms in PA. This small garden has many rooms plus a beautiful perennial border and a gift shop. In addition to the dipping pool that I showed there is this great pool.
That is one of my beautiful sisters posing in the background. I think she is considering a plunge!
This is the view looking back across the pool. All the gardens are on an axis related to each other.
There is statuary everywhere but it is well used as intriguing accents and is not bothersome as some statuary can be in a garden.
This piece is in the garden by the gift shop. What do you call this kind of buddha?

I had to show the perennial borders because as perennial borders go,
these, one in the sun and one in the shade, are beautiful and there really isn't a perennial border at Longwood, a disappointment, or at Winterthur which is a more naturalistic landscape. The shade border winds around the outside of the sunny perennial border and is a welcome relief from the bright sun. Pictures always come out better in the shade don't they. There is also a vegetable garden which is gated and fenced. There is no escape from critters even in the upscale neighborhoods of Meadowbrook, PA. I like this fence as it is fairly unobtrusive and there are some nice ornamentals in front of the fence. The gift shop entry has a colorful grouping of plants and there are fun things to buy in the gift shop. This little guy went home with one of my friends. A monster with a frog friend! Gotta love it! This is it from Meadowbrook. I took over one hundred pictures here so you have only seen a few.
