The Wooster Garden

Peter Wooster’s fabulous CT garden is featured in the NYT’s Home and Garden section today and Anne Raver captured the story in her usual brilliant fashion.  I visited a few weeks after Anne and spent a long afternoon waiting for the sun to mellow and getting to know Peter.  Limited by a stroke several years ago, his vocabulary is restricted to a few words but how he inflects them could fill a dictionary.  The garden is overseen by his gifted friend Rob Girard who knows the art of balancing formal elements with naturalistic rambling accents.  Who knew how wonderful simple squarish beds could be once filled with a multiculture  of fine foliage plants?
