GWAA - Chanticleer 2000

1pt.gif (86 bytes)We were met at the entrance by Chris Woods, the director of the gardens. We then made our way up to the house for a beautiful offering of refreshments and nibblies before heading out to see the gardens. The house was built in in 1913 and the family Rosengarten enjoyed their summers there. I have also included a picture of the sun porch and of one of the two copper roofed corner pieces just off the back garden of the house.

1pt.gif (86 bytes)In my never ending quest to locate unusual benches I sure lucked out here....I found four of them...enjoy! and watch for a special area to appear in Pixs because I have caught the collector bug for benches!
1pt.gif (86 bytes)The pictures of what looks like a ruin are in fact a brand new Ruin Garden built on the same spot where Adolf Jr's. house once stood. It was called Minder House.
