I could not have had a better image greet me this Sunday morning than a feature on a gorgeous Connecticut garden I photographed for the Boston Globe magazine! Among the craziness of last week I somehow had forgotten it was going to print this weekend. A four page spread of my photographs in the Globe Magazine! Pinch me.
I photographed the gardens last June when they were in their full Spring/Summer glory. To say they are magnificent is the understatement of the year. The creeping honeysuckle, the climbing roses, this garden is truly a little slice of heaven tucked away in Pomfret, Connecticut. The wife tends to the garden herself and the husband designed the home. Dream team indeed. And it is no wonder…they are the parents of my friend and blogger/designer extraordinaire Erin Gates.
Here are the photos the Globe selected and the full article here.
Last but not least their metal chicken “Beyonce” overlooking the home.

City living is great, amazing restaurants and shopping at your fingertips, museums, music and cultural events around every corner, but what city and apartment living can often lack is the opportunity to stretch (errrr use…you know what I mean) one’s green thumb. I’ve tried to make do with some window boxes and little terrarium vignettes in an effort to bring the outside into my little city apartment.
Terrarium inspired plantings
Gorgeous bright pink peonies and hydranga
What have you planted for spring and summer?
