Things I See Around Town: Mary Grigg’s Garden

Several weeks ago I visited a beautiful garden in Mint Hill, NC. Mary Griggs began developing her two acre garden almost 25 years ago, and what she has created is nothing short of breathtaking.

Mary told me was inspired by her parents stewardship of the earth and its fauna. She believes she has a God-given talent (aka green thumb) and a deep love of the earth. Her garden is direct evidence of that. I am delighted to share the following photographs.

I love the way Ruth has used pots in her garden.

Mary Griggs has crafted a garden lover’s paradise. I am grateful for her creativity and her generosity in sharing such a lovely place.
