Les and Monique's garden in Connecticut

Deanne Fortnam bugged me for years to go and visit Les and Monique Anthony's garden in Central Connecticut, and I finally went a couple of years ago in autumn. It lived up to all the hype! Alas, I don't have those photos anymore, but Deanne visited the Anthonys this season and, of course, took way better photos than I ever could. She says, "We went for our annual fall garden tour of the Anthonys' gardens last month and snapped a bunch of pics for Gardeny Goodness. It seriously is just the most beautiful private garden I've had the pleasure to see.  Every time I visit I remind myself to plant more for fall interest. I think I'm going to have to get more lespedeza as I'm totally in love with it." Me, too, Deanne! This garden is seriously wonderful. Tomorrow we'll zoom in a bit more and get some background info on the garden from Monique via Deanne. Stay tuned!
