We are very pleased about our garden in the Boston Flower Show 2013. We won two awards, one for the granite sculpture 'From Maiden to Mother'.

The other award was from the Ecological Landscape Alliance for Environmental Vision, best demonstrating the design and execution of ecological principles in a landscape.
