Tony Chow’s Garden
You enter up a formal driveway, broken up by curving lines of foliage and colour. The house, of rough stone and smooth, looks outwards at a riot of shapes, sizes and colours. Tall shrubs are fronted by Black-Eye Susans and they by smaller plantings. Day lilies jut in front of taller spruces, providing a perfect setting for the pathway, the lamppost and the house. In the backyard, water flows in an irregular pond. Here and there, sitting stones jut out of the grass – inviting you sit or hide. Random flagstones form a path linking the house deck to the rustic wooden gazebo. The dark wooden structure relaxes in its corner – a quiet place to listen to and view Nature.
