Photo of the Day - Serenity in the Garden at Mohonk Mt. House

Mohonk Mt. House is a magical, mountain top hotel in New Paltz, NY.

I worked there as a young gardener after studying landscape architecture at the University of Hawaii.

That was 40 years ago and I am still working - more than ever - in the landscape profession.  Now I teach, write and make beautiful landscapes for people.

I took this photo 2 years ago...Go for the day - as a day visitor -  and prepare to be amazed!


  1. Looks so enchanting.....

    1. It is! one of the bets kept secrets - a castle atop a mountain with miles of hiking trails....and a great garden.
