About the Event

Home of CLE Board member Stephanie Edgar Reeves and husband Bill Reeves (both avid gardeners), the iconic cottage garden at Thistlewaite on Big Bearpen in Highlands was designed by Alex Smith of Atlanta in concert with classical architect Norman Askins who designed the house built in 2008. The 1.3 acre wooded site is contiguous to property deeded to the Land Trust leading to the Kelsey Trail. Surrounding the house (inspired by a turn-of-the-century house in the English Cotswolds) there is an approach garden with an herbaceous border of perennials and wildflowers leading to a lychgate entrance to a more formal, walled garden and terrace. There is also a small fern path and seep garden in the back of the house fed by a natural spring. Refreshments will be served.
