There are no marblefragments; there is practically no architec-tural design, and yet each bed has been socarefully laid out and is so profuse in itsblooming that a happy result has been pro-duced. Inside the box borders is an infinitevariety of plants; the tiny bluebell, thestately hollyhock, and the soft tint of therose each adds its own particular charmand gives a distinct feature to the grounds.

Graceful waterjets form a fountain, which is the centralfeature. Grass paths intersect the grounds.
