In 2006, the alfresco sun deck was completed. Flora then turned her attention to the back yard. Truly a labor of love, she designed the entire layout of the quasi Japanese garden and personally selected trees & plants. The garden have various seating areas for tranquil reading or ipad-ing. There are tables and chairs in the garden for snacks & drinks alfresco. Lots of backyard birds, squirrels, & neighbor’s cats for your amusement.
Pennsylvania blue stone pavers were chosen for the garden along with a small pond which accommodates a few gold fishes. We were surprised that the fishes got big & tough & survived the harsh New England Winter! Guests can enjoy seating areas thru-out the garden oasis and find shade under the strikingly white bark Himalayan Birch or Japanese maple. There are three Japanese maples: one on each side of the pond, and one in the center of the garden. The Waterfall maple is the one next to the pond. There is also a mulberry tree that attracts many native North Eastern birds such as blue jays, mocking birds, cardinals, black birds and the humble sparrows. They take turns at feasting on the berries and put on quite a show during the Summer season.
