Cottage Garden

The Cottage Garden is brimming with jasmine, hydrangea, cat's-whiskers, pentas, mandeville and more, all held in by a low wall made from Florida fieldstone.   Flowers of various shades of pink, blue and white are used to create a very unique garden.  The sound created by the wind as it flows through the wind chimes, with the fragrances and colors of the garden, combine to stimulate your senses.
