Magazine, "Ringwood Manor and Its Garden," House and Garden Magazine, Vol. 11, no. 9
Sarah and Eleanor’s mother, Sarah Amelia, spent as much time developing the gardens and grounds at Ringwood Manor as she did the home itself. She used to say that she could not paint a picture, but she could make one—and every year she did. She shared her love of landscape and garden design with Eleanor, and together they laid out formal gardens behind the home. Author and friend Elizabeth Duer wrote in 1902 that there was “[a] mysterious charm about the pleasure-grounds of Ringwood. You can find surroundings to fit every mood.”
