A painter’s Garden

On the KenTon Garden Tour this summer, I came across this unpretentious garden along the backside of a corner-lot house. It was an odd spot for a garden, sort of tucked between the neighbor’s house and not really visible from the street well, or even the owner’s windows. At first I thought it was a less-well-organized cutting garden. After talking to the owner, an artist, it is a garden grown specifically to paint. It had the same purpose as Monet’s Garden in Giverny. Except without the acreage, budget and gardening staff.

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.

  1. I can see how that would be fun to paint… if I could paint. For me, it would be a photographer's garden.

    I agree with Helen, my first thought was photography too. Great for macro shots.
