The second garden on tour was that of Cheryl & Max Lenker.
It is a perfect English Style Cottage Garden; complete with rose arbor entrance, boxwood lined walk and welcoming plaque…
The mixed borders are masterfully planted …
featuring an elegant shade structure that serves as focal point.
Adjacent to the house is an outdoor living room with all the accoutrements for gracious living & entertaining.
From this area one can enjoy the sound and sight of a split stream waterfall.
If one ascends to the upper level one crosses the waterfall.
Here the character of the garden changes and one discovers a quiet shaded walkway …
and a place for contemplation.
This garden has it all and of course the hydrangeas were fabulous!
We all see different elements in a garden, I have not touched on the amazing front of this house, so for more on this garden see PRETTY OLD HOUSES and LINDARAXA.
