of the gardenat Knock-Mae-Cree — in old Irish, Hill of My Heart —•(Plate 168), and the curtailed view of the flowery plantingin the Woodside garden stimulate a longing further topenetrate into these lovely sanctums. The garden at Elmwood is partly illustrated in theaccompanying picture — it is further gracefully adornedwith pergola and pool. Liberally designed without beingelaborate, it has a charm that is all its own. Of quite another character is the perfect formalgarden at Pomfret Center, appealing to the garden loverfor its surpassing beauty in flower bloom, enhanced by thegraceful architectural lines of the buildings surroundingthe enclosure, and giving it the sense of complete privacy. Still another type of garden seen occasionally in Amer-ica is that at Branford House, a magnificent estate atGroton near New London, and one of the famous places ofthat popular summer resort. This stately garden suggestssome of the foreign gardens familiar to us through traveland books. 90
