The day I visited was clear and bright, and the lawn was still damp from an earlier rain. The shaded benches in the far back corners beckoned as the heat and humidity began to climb. A winding stream drew my eye to a small pond, complete with obligatory gold fish.
The garden is simple in its design. The repetition of colors and plants and curved beds accentuated by grass paths is the perfect example of how adhering to the basics of garden design produces a successful landscape.
Nestled within the affluent Oakwood neighborhood, I have a feeling there are many more such gardens, privately owned, to be found. Returning to the garden, on a cooler day and with more time to explore the area, is on my garden wish list. And maybe, I will be lucky to arrive during one of the blanket concerts.
