A painter's Garden
On the KenTon Garden Tour this summer, I came across this unpretentious garden along the backside of a corner-lot house. It was an odd spot for a garden, sort of tucked between the neighbor's house and not really visible from the street well, or even the owner's windows. At first I thought it was a less-well-organized cutting garden. After talking to the owner, an artist, it is a garden grown specifically to paint. It had the same purpose as Monet's Garden in Giverny. Except without the acreage, budget and gardening staff.
