Another summer month, another amazing evening of our Cocktails in Great Gardens series. June’s event was held at the home of Susan Rothschild and Don Freeman in Richmond, MA and it was phenomenal. This garden was a testament to what can me accomplished when gardening on a slope. Terraced gardens were connected with well executed stone pathways that all seemed to lead down to the picture perfect, small pond and water garden. Accented with a pitched pergola, covered in pink roses and clematis (in peak bloom, no less) guests gravitated to the spot. Just a up the hill, towards the house, another garden tucked into the woodland’s edge gave a completely different feel from the garden below and presented a breathtaking view of the not-so-distant hills. A big BBG thank you to Susan and Don for sharing their home with us and inspiring the home gardener in us all!
