Some photos from the garden’s of Doris Duke’s Newport estate, Rough Point, just in time for the spring flora burgeoning around us. To discover how these historic gardens have intermingled, altered, and accented the natural landscape since it was originally surveyed by Frederick Law Olmsted in 1887, be sure to check out Newport Restoration Foundation’s latest exhibition, Nature Tamed, on view at Rough Point through November 5th, 2017. My photos appear with permission from, and gratitude towards, the Newport Restoration Foundation.
