Place:
The Whim (Newport, Rhode Island)
United States of America -- Rhode Island -- Newport County -- Newport
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles, historic photographs, and landscape architect's plans, transcripts of interviews, and other information.
General:
The Whim is a seaside New England garden comprised of flower and shrub borders and a sunken quadrangle planted along the foundation walls of demolished greenhouses, with follies, sculptures, steps to the ocean planted with lavender, and swaths of lawn. The walls and privet hedges trimmed to calibrated heights protect the flowers from the salt spray and winds off the ocean while not blocking the view. The 3.4 acre property has other garden areas surrounding the lawns, including a border of bright blue Nikko hydrangeas that are fed aluminum sulfate, a crabapple border, a shed draped with a climbing rose, a secret garden with kousa dogwood and viburnum, and a shady garden walk alongside the house. Garden areas are named for the animal and other sculptures that are featured, including a heron by Walter Matia in the heron quadrangle, eagles at the head of the eagle borders, and rabbits copied from the ones that were at Chateau-sur-Mer, a Newport mansion.
This property was once part of a larger property that had gardens designed by Beatrix Farrand for her aunt, the author Edith Wharton. The Evangeline climbing rose that covers the tool shed was transplanted from the Wharton garden many years ago, and renamed the Miss Newport rose by the owner. Friends and associates have contributed design ideas and artifacts to this garden: the mushroom shaped garden furniture once belonged to a friend, the gazebo was purchased and installed by one of the gardeners, and the steps were fabricated from discarded Newport curbing.
Persons associated with the garden include Raymond Thayer, (landscape architect, 1968-present); T. J. Brown and Timothy Brown, (gardeners, 1952-present); Anne Baptista (property manager, 1989-present); and Jerica Ford (gardener, 2007-present).
Related Materials:
The Whim related holdings consist of 1 folder (20 digital images)

General:
Located on over ten acres of land, Hays Gardens was installed in 1992 and completed in 2001. The Hays Garden is a large, lakeside property with a variety of gardens, including a rose garden, a cottage garden, and a moon garden. The site was formerly a part of a rock quarry that operated over 80 years ago and large boulders still remain on the property. The house was built in the middle of a hillside that goes down to the lake. In 1992, the owners began the woodland garden, which is located at the side of the house and includes a pond and waterfall from rock outcroppings. In 1996, Chester Brown helped the owners install the half round rose garden and moon garden. A rose covered arbor marks the entrance to the rose garden with walkways lined by boxwood and germander. The moon garden contains white and pale blue flowers. The property includes a guest house with a cottage garden. The cottage garden contains a wide variety of herbs, perennials, and annuals and is anchored by four evergreens. A tall bird house is located at the center and at one end is a rose covered pergola.
Garden features includes arbors, balustrades, benches, birdhouses, boat houses, butterfly gardens, containers, cutting gardens, decks, doorways, driveways, split rail fences, picket fences, garden walks, gates, a lake, ornamental grasses, a pergola, a pond, a waterfall, stepping stones, urns, and sculptures.
Other plantings include hydrangea, azaleas, wildflowers, ferns, roses, crepe myrtles, herbs, and evergreens.
Persons associated with the garden include: Chester Brown, (gardener, 1996-1997)
