There are many signatures that are associated with Newport — magnificent crescent bay beaches; velvety lawns meeting the blue horizon of water; majestic trees adding grace to the streetscapes and parkland settings; warm days and cool, misty nights that ensure lush gardens…and the Parterre Bench.
Pairing this iconic garden accessory with blue hydrangeas, another Newport signature, is cause for celebration!
Which we’ve seemed to be doing on an almost weekly basis.
So dreamy in its soft focus!
And for your viewing pleasure, the Parterre Bench is now on YouTube! Thank you to Holly Holden for featuring my treasured garden accessory on her new YouTube channel “Holly Holden.” (I can’t forget to mention that her television series, “You Are Cordially Invited: Highclere Castle,” was nominated for an Emmy!) Do go to her YouTube channel to subscribe to the weekly episodes about classic design and living well.
What’s in your garden this summer?
