Gorgeous Gardens

We are in the process of trying to turn our bare-bones garden into something at least approaching lovely. I'm so inspired by these amazing shots by Frances Benjamin Johnston (1864–1952), one of the earliest female American photographers. I found these over on Design Sponge, where you can read more about Frances and her work.

“Casa de Mariposa” Walter Franklin Cobb house, Butterfly Lane, Montecito, California, 1917 
“Millefiori,” Albert Barnes Boardman house, Great Plains Road and Coopers Neck Lane, Southampton, New York. Steps to flower garden, 1914
“Armsea Hall,” Charles Frederick Hoffman Jr. house, Narragansett Bay, Newport, Rhode Island. Rose Trellis
“Flagstones,” Charles Clinton Marshall house, 117 East 55th Street, New York, New York. Tea house/sleeping porch, 1921–1922
