By the visitor's entrance
Liked how the stone bench is held up with stones inserted perpendicular into the wall
A special exhibit featuring "Rare Earth - Garden Pots as Sculpture" by Mark Hewitt, a North Carolina ceramic artist. Love it!
Delicate japanese painted fern
The garden's shade gardens are lush with hosta and ferns.
The mosquitoes were out in full force given our month of intense rain (June) even tho it was 11am, so we hope to go back when things are drier. Variegated Brunnera.
Aspens!!! AMAZING bark! Love.
These and Sycamores are my favorite.
Great huge boulder, home to an enormous amount of tiny plantings!
These are APPLE trees, believe it or not, in semi-shade, and were lush with apples. I have never seen any branch out from the base like this. So many mosquitoes in this area, could not spend much time photographing.
The Martha Stewart Garden that she helped plant to commemorate their 75th anniversary.
Hollyhocks and poppy pods
See next photo for description of this old mill wheel donated to the Garden.

A rock finial atop the bench post
An old ash tree that seeded itself atop a rock decades ago. I cannot locate the website that talks about date.
Approaching the veggie gardens and children's garden... and chicken coop!
WOW. Wish we had the space now for this. So meticulous and no weeds!
Ooooh, I love these pots. Great material for a photograph of shapes and textures.
