Garden Delights: A Morning At Mill Fleurs
Is there anything more enchanting than a perfect day in June?
Today was just such a day in the Philadelphia region. Perfect!
And we spent the morning in the vivid, lush, private gardens of Mill Fleurs not far from the Delaware River in Point Pleasant, PA.
The gardens at Mill Fleurs surround a 1742 grist mill on the often-raging Tohickon Creek. They are set into massive rock outcroppings and steep woodland slopes. The owner/gardener says: "We have drama and drainage. Everything else is pure challenge."
"The gardens are organized by color: all the plants in a given area will have either foliage or flowers of the same color family. This subtle arrangement is demanding because it makes you look closely, which visitors seem to like doing."
These are incredible gardens that are testament to a true labor of love and we're happy to share some photos with you.
