r the beauty of this garden is increas-ing with the maturing of its trees and shrubbery, and allthat tends to complete the dignity of so noble a design. So artistically wrought are all the various features con-tributing to the beauty of the Clifton garden that choiceof illustrations is made difficult when selection is limitedto so few. This fact explains the omission of the littleflower garden which even though charming must give placeto the accompanying remarkable views. Not far from Cleveland Shadyside, on the lake, is an-other place of interest to flower lovers, and here a smallformal garden has been recently completed in addition tothe older water garden. This delightful spot is worthy ofparticular attention not only on account of the varietyof plants adorning its banks, but for its picturesque set-ting as well. Indian Hill offers a glimpse of a fair little garden,with no suggestion of display; a vine-covered bower sur-rounded with flowers, — a creation of simple loveliness. 278
