General:
Little is known about this garden at the home of Mrs. J. Z. Millar, photographed by Molly Adams during its peak springtime bloom. Borders and beds featured daffodils and tulips and were bordered with boxwood. Flowering trees, evergreens, and a lawn were accented by a cast iron bench and a birdbath. A charming note is added to several shots by the inclusion of a little girl (probably Mrs. Millar's granddaughter) and her toy stuffed tiger.
Persons associated with the garden include Mrs. J. Z. Millar (former owner, ca. 1960-1980).
