The Garden Called Rose Cottage

Garden of Sharon and Jim Bright

115 N. Bloodworth Street

Raleigh

The journey through the gardens of Rose Cottage begins at the carriage step.  One step and you stop.  The home and garden’s quaintness is mesmerizing.  Antique roses, perennials, annuals, flowering trees and shrubs, plus pretty parterres define the space.  The hectic pace of life is slowed as one enters these gardens.

This new home, built to historic specifications, sits comfortable in Raleigh’s downtown historic district.  The gardens arose out of an old graveled parking lot, left barren by a house fire long ago.  The Bright’s transformed the grounds into a lush and tranquil oasis of color and fragrance.

Inspired my Monet, but realized with Sharon’s keen eye for color and Jims handiness, these gardens were created.

Be sure to venture to the very back to see the bountiful vegetable beds, a secret garden, a compost operation, and a little garden cottage that functions as a convenient shed.
