Worthy of Words Wednesday 1.1.14 – Formal Gardens at the Vanderbilt!

Masonry is an artform. Whether it’s brick and mortar or stonework, it adds wonderful structure to the garden. Take it a step farther and combine it artfully with wood and plants and you have garden magic!!  This past weekend I visited the formal gardens of  F. W. Vanderbilt National Historic Site in Hyde Park, NY. As you can see in the images below, all three elements combine nicely to create an amazing garden! 

Have you structure in your garden? Would you consider adding it? I’d love to hear your thoughts on how these images inspire you!

Enjoy!
