Garden Accents, CAPE COD HOME

Hanging baskets, garden gates, terra-cotta urns are some of the many accoutrements you will find in Pat McLoud's garden.  A hammock is strung between shade trees for a relaxing nap on a hot day.  Spheres grace pedestals and all around beautiful plantings backed by arborvitae, conical white Hydrangea paniculata blossoms mix with deep purple tubular cones of a butterfly bush.

With a few strong structural elements -- boxwood, arborvitae, and gravel -- McLoud has provided bones for her gardens to rest on and against.
