As promised here is the second garden that we visited. This is one of my personal favorites, Lee Links Garden. The gardens, the greenhouse, and Koi pond... The house, which I understand started as an A-Frame many years ago is now almost a piece of artwork itself. After viewing my photos at the end of the day I was disappointed that I had really had not captured the full uniqueness of this property. The whole property is a piece of art...check out the detail on the chimney.
When you walk up the drive way to the left is the guesthouse.
Straight ahead is the garage with the greenhouse on the back.

One of my most favorite things to do in May is the Trade Secrets Connecticut Garden Tour, which was this past Sunday. I look forward to this weekend every year, rain or shine it is fabulous. Although this year it was raining for most of the day, it proved to be the most perfect day for photographs. Take a look at the colors, especially the beautiful spring green seen throughout. I did not use any filters, it is Mother Nature at her best. I took hundreds of photos, so to not overwhelm you I will post them throughout the week. Our first stop Mudge Manor simply gorgeous. Enjoy!
I am creative and enjoy being inspired by the unique, innovative and artistic side of every day living. Please join me on my journey as I continue to use the knowledge I have accumulated, the new designs and inspirations I find... to create Timeless Cool Style.
