Text Appearing Before Image:
7 direction, are a delight to the botanist,from the time of the coming of the blue-eyed violet to the late glow of the golden-rod. It is refreshing to come upon a gar-den such as this. 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. In the center is a circular basin, with agraceful surrounding of lilies, dotted hereand there, on its surface, with the whiteof the pond-lily blossom. Graceful waterjets form a fountain, which is the centralfeature. Grass paths intersect the grounds.
