At least a couple of times a year, I need to go visit other people’s gardens. Meander among somebody else’s work and just drink in the beauty.

A couple of summers ago, I visited a private Peterborough garden during the Garden Conservancy’s fundraiser garden tour. It was vast, formal and filled with gorgeous statuary and structure and reminded me of some of the gardens at the mansions in Newport, R.I. The stately, lovely home of Stan Fry and his wife, Cheri, sparked a yearning to investigate since I love all things houses but it was the gardens that drew me in.
