Barbara Agren's Smithfield Cottage

Millerton, NY
Open Days, Edibles, Garden sculpture

Barbara’s garden, atop the beautiful Smithfield Valley in the heart of the Millbrook Hunt Country, is exhibited in vibrant colors in her perennial landscape around her cottage. Her fashion background shows in the mix of color from an array of roses, Crocosmia, Russian sage, Allium ‘Globemaster’, lilies, phlox, and many more amongst stone and cast-iron sculptures and stone walls on different levels. A peach and apple espalier is featured against the charming cottage. The views show the magnificent landscape of the Smithfield Valley, not a house in sight.
