The Junkin-Nickols Garden
This home and garden occupy a spot on a small tidal cove and is basically triangular in shape with the larger part of the garden fronting the street. Behind the house the garden narrows as it gets closer to the water, and there is a large deck made for entertaining and for taking advantage of the views. The garden is full of personal touches, many of them created by the hands-on homeowners.
The Eure Garden
Like our first stop, the Eure garden also has many personal touches, however, as soon as we pulled in, the plant geeks on the van knew we would have a few more distractions. The front garden is mostly wooded with paths throughout. A circular driveway leads to the front door and surrounds a small garden whose centerpiece is a large boulder that the gardener had draped with spent allium blossoms. I particularly liked how creeping fig (Ficus pumila) is used on the front steps.
