Ladew Topiary Gardens outside of Baltimore, MD.
Garden Club of America.
A very knowledgeable lady took us through the house, then we were on our own to browse the gardens.
Harvey S Ladew (1887-1976) designed and created his unique 22 acres of flower and topiary gardens after purchasing the farm in 1929.
Mr Ladew was a self taught gardener, and one of the first Americans to create garden rooms.
There's hope for me.
This is the Tivoli Teahouse, it was designed after the Tivoli Theatre ticket booth.
The inside was very sweet, I wish I had taken pictures.
The garden played host to many topiaries such as lyrebirds, hunt scenes, swans, ducks and much more. The trimming of the topiaries begin in July and take three months to complete.
This was a wonderful hunt scene.
Another structure on the grounds, this one in the Yellow Garden.
On the pond we found this boat...
