Whimsical Charm

Whimsical Charm

Two designations on the weathered shingles alert you to the fact that you will soon enter a very special place.  “Samuel Fessenden 1840” provides the date that William Fessenden, Chief Glass Blower for the Boston & Sandwich Glass Company, built this house for his son, Steven.  A plaque “Certified Wildlife Habitat” assures that only natural organic materials were used to create the beautiful landscape soon to be enjoyed. Bird life is also in evidence throughout the property and tended to as lovingly as each garden plot.  Entering the property, Coneflowers, Daylilies, Tiger Lilies, and Poppies are positioned around Humpty Dumpty so as to keep him company.  Straight ahead a Tropical Hibiscus climbs up the garage wall. Walking down the cozy garden path to the left, Hydrangeas of various colors, blooming annuals and a stunning array of potted plants are in full display.  Stand under the pergola graced by two soothing water fountains and view an étagère filled with yet more plants. Be sure to explore all areas of this landscape- each space is filled to the brim with creative whimsy and charm.
