This is the first phase of a very special home illustration. Actually it is one of several homes on a private estate on a nearby lake.
The lady of the house was a refined, sophisticated and very chic woman that had homes all over the world. She raised sons and daughters and was a world class cook. She always opened her homes to family and friends. I was the gardener at this magical property for six years.
Each summer guests would arrive to enjoy tennis, swimming, fabulous meals, boating, walking in the formal rose garden, and cocktails served at the main house before dinner
It amazes me how small our world seems at times. Who would guess that so many years later I would cross paths with one of those special guests via our blogs. She and her husband traveled to Maine for summer holidays and stayed right here in this home.
Watch as I try to bring this gorgeous old Tudor back to the grande dame that I remember.
There were thousands of bright pink Impatiens planted among the stone paths and in her many window boxes.
Do you know of a special place that evokes all kinds of wonderful memories of experiences past?
