Artist Stephen Parrish’s garden was once known as one of the most beautiful of the Cornish Colony gardens. Beds of trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals provided year-round structure and abundant summer color—and became the subject for many of his paintings. After Parrish’s death, garden walls and structures crumbled and trees overshadowed the flowerbeds. A new owner was inspired to reclaim the garden and asked me to research its history and develop a design. We restored stonewalls and wooden benches, planted hedges and filled terraced garden beds with perennials, shrubs, and annuals. Twenty years on it continues to provide pleasure for its owners.
