A Garden for Strolling: Flower Magazine https://flowermag.com
Bettie Beardon Pardee achieved the impossible- to build a new house and garden in Newport, RI, and have it blend in perfectly with the famous ‘Cottages of Newport’. The garden suits the house in scale and intimacy, it is not too big yet certainly not small, with much to discover; vistas, refined plant combinations and a myriad different shades of green. It is ‘French formal’, with a twist of high American style.
Having worked on two books on the houses of Newport, Living Newport and Private Newport with Bettie, which were published in 2014 and 2004, I was fortunate to photograph her garden several times and get to know it well. It is a very exciting addition to Newport.
