A statue called La Brezza ("The Breeze" in Italian) was a 95th birthday gift to Mrs. Mott from family, friends, and staff. A beautiful herb garden surrounds the bronze girl, who seems to be celebrating the sights, sounds, and smells of the garden. Ruth Mott celebrated with her about 1995.
Different Plants Each Year
A wide variety of flowers, vegetables, and herbs are grown here. Some love shade; others love sun. Some are annuals, which must be planted each year. Others are perennials, which return again and again. Look for small labels among the plantings that identify their names. Feel free to smell, taste, and ask questions!
"After dinner, C.R. [Cousin Ruth] and I walked around the grounds. In the lower garden it looks as though there might be a lot of strawberries. Peas seem to be doing well except there are a number of spots where the pheasants got ahead of us."
— C.S. Mott, June 1945
