Hortensia House

View image gallery

Huguette did not work to plan or set out to create a particular style, it simply evolved with time, like a cottage garden. Masses of color co-ordinated flowers in hazy pastels, to blue and yellow plantings to match the trim on the Victorian style house. Blue is carried through the garden as a key colour in the bridge and outdoor furniture.

Huguette also extended plantings of her cherished blue hydrangeas to line the entire driveway and create a stunning sight in summer. Spring Creek, the stream which bisects the garden in a gem of pristine and peaceful water. A “Monet” inspired bridge crosses the stream in front of the house.
