So thoughtful, so delicious!
Ruth is hoping to build a
greenhouse in an unused area of
her home, where she will be able
to winter plants and care for ail-
The paths come together in the
center of the garden, where a pavil-
ion has been created from hand-
forged, hand-wrought iron, with
evergreen, bittersweet and morn-
ing glory growing upon it. Beneath
is a stone bench, the better to sit
and contemplate the garden. A
verdigris metal butterfly bench,
made-from battleship-grade metal,
is tucked beneath a tree, and a
matching birdbath and mini-bath
(for small animals) stand nearby.
Animal statuary is scattered
throughout. A monkey topiary
swings in a cranberry tree. Next,
Ruth is looking to add a water fea-
ture and an abstract sculpture.
"A garden is like anything else
in life: It evolves," Ruth says.
"There is something beautiful
here at all times of the day, all of
the seasons," says Ruth. "I enjoy it
24 hours a day, 12 months of the
year. It gives me great pleasure.
I'm a homebody and, with this gar-
den, it's worth staying home." 0
