On the left side of the gazebo is a sunken garden, which has nothing in it yet. The statue is our Marianne. The bushes on her left gave a show of small white flowers in late Spring.
At the right hand side of the gazebo is our rose garden surrounded by English boxwoods. Now I know how long it takes for the boxwood to grow, a long time! There is a Japanese red maple in the rose garden and a small fountain. At the back of the rose garden, we have a blue spruce and a Chinese dogwood with the pine forest further out. I have to replant most of the roses this year. All of the hybrid tea roses died during the harsh northeast winter.
I just brought out our bronze figure for the fountain from the basement after six years, notice the spider web still on it. If I can make it working again, the water will flow out from his flute.
