PRANCING THRU OLD LONG ISLAND

PUPPET BARBUDA adores prancing thru Old Long Island. Not worth her effort, above. A beer taste - champagne budget landscape.
Above, PUPPET BARBUDA is prancing the landscape & peering into windows. She likes.

OMG, get serious, PUPPET BARBUDA thinks as she ignores this wretched landscape, above.

Not bad at all dear ones, above. PUPPET BARBUDA is delighted with the steps, vine & espaliered shrub. And is that gravel leading to the steps? Delicious!!



PUPPET'S kicking up the gravel, above. Wondering, are they French or was it just French travel giving inspiration?


PUPPET BARBUDA knows well the bones of this garden, above. Time has taken its owner and most flowering shrubs. But the design was so fabulous (axis-double axis-focal points-enfilades-rooms-contrasts-scale-line-form-flow) it remains. And, the structure of this landscape design can be maintained by the least skilled worker. Trees, hedges, meadow, focal point.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
