Though I am not an expert on children in general, I have visited many public gardens that include an area for children.. not a bad idea really, since most little kids are probably not to keen on looking at plants for 4 or 5 hours straight. This was without question the most well done children's garden I have seen anywhere , any time.Small scale buildings, play areas, colorful plants and child friendly docents.
The entry to the garden--the concrete balls on the stone pillars echo the drifts of 'Annabelle' Hydrangeas.
Semperviviums at the base of the spheres.
This is the border around the exterior boundry of the childrens garden. It was dynamite !
Inside the garden the plantings were dense and gaudy..
How about that roof?
Doesn't everyone need a kitty picket fence ?
A little kid-sized greenhouse with a few Peter Rabbit accessories.
A lake !
A sandpit !
Of course there were chickens.
And a veggie garden
A Big Leaf Garden
Actual little kids at the water pump
Cool off on a patio that has squirting rocks..
Follow the maze after lunch under the pergola..another great roof
A crooked house and a barn full of toys and books...
