One of the few shade gardens at the farm is the rock lined Zen Garden. Nestled behind the Manor House and shaded by a semi-circle of Rose of Sharon trees, it is a place for quiet reflection and meditation. The intimate Buddha waterfall pond area provides a sense of peace and tranquility and offers a respite from the hot summer sun. The antique bird baths belonged to the owner’s grandparents and provide the many varieties of native birds with a quick drink or bath. Many of the varieties of Hostas displayed throughout the garden were donated by the DelMarVa Hosta Society. Day lilies and annuals provide some specks of color throughout as well as in the six foot window box that highlights the picture window of the Manor House. The garden is one of the owner’s favorites and is a must see when visiting the farm.
