Garden Gallery: Beatrix Farrand in Maine

Beatrix Ferrand Garden Maine

Garland Farm in on Mt Desert Island near Bar Harbor, Maine, where Beatrix Farrand, a renowned landscape designer, lived and designed her last gardens.

Maine is a huge summer destination for New Englanders and early 20th century designer, Beatrix Farrand’s design hand can be seen at many properties.  As the summer dwindles, I thought this would be perfect to share. This garden, at Garland Farm on Mt Desert Island,  was Beatrix’s last garden where she created (for herself) a sweet space that was in perfect scale to the house and through which I can easily image her pottering (in her 80’s).  She only lived her for 3 years years before her death – which means she was at least 80 when she moved in and started this garden.  Optimistically, I am encourage by the thought that if I am just like her, I might have another 40+ years to learn more garden stuff….I hope I can keep this up that long.
