In addition to the natural beauty of the crater lake, cliffs, and mountains of the Mohonk Mountain House resort, there was a lush and huge formal garden.  I had the good fortune to spend a couple of days at this stunningly beautiful Victorian “castle” nestled in the mountains and surrounded by thousands of acres of protected lands.

I imagine this is a dream job for a gardener.
