General
The eastern side of Seal Harbor, the garden of Mrs. Gilbert H. Montague is located, in which there is a steep hill, and the planting space was secured only by building retaining walls. The entrance to the main garden, through a small rose garden then through this delicate iron gate led down to a long border of annuals and perennials. One side in shades of blues, purples and whites and the other in reds, oranges and yellows.
