Oh, Give Me a Home & Garden
Thanks to landscape architect Chris Cohan for gallantly casting off his “retirement” cloak and glorying in gardening. Our in-house wit and floraphile reminds us that all glory isn’t fleeting, at least in gardens, which, if tended well, repay us season after season.
In Mary-Liz Campbell’s timeless landscape designs, classical elements inspire and delight. Our cover includes her photos of pink splendor and a sundial in a stately garden reaching for the skies.
Lotte Meister, who can reinvent any old house, has transformed a 19th-century barn in her backyard into one of the most desirable guest/play houses in the county. Thanks to Dipti Shah of Benowitz Shah Architects for sharing her photographs and a shout out to Debra Mellott for bringing a gracious old lady into the modern age.
When we asked Anja Porto if she had taken any good garden photos of late, she modestly replied hers “probably weren’t ‘cover-quality’”. Think again, Anja, and
thanks for always coming through another blooming*#! issue.
Wishing all of our H&G contributors summer splendor in their gardens and plenty of starry nights on their decks and patios.
