When the Williamses shipped the manor house over from England, they also had Charles Gillette, a prominent landscape architect, design English-style gardens on the grounds of the manor. The English style of gardens includes brick walls, boxwood hedges, courtyards, and walkways. There wasn't enough time to kill before the 1.30pm tour to do a full garden walk. Besides that, the weather was less desirable than my good friend Phil deserved on the last day of his holiday and, being early spring, not everything was in bloom. In another month or so, these gardens would have resembled an artist's pallette. The featured photo is of the Sunken Garden. There are many more gardens on the property with all manner of flowers.
