Rock Garden with Small Creek

Description

This garden was designed to look natural, but when World War II came, a lot of Violetta Delafield's workers enlisted and the rock garden turned into a "rough garden." Violetta still cultivates and grouped certain plants so the garden would have an idealized scale and include key landscape features.
