If you have the opportunity, visit the garden of an artist and savor their particular vision. Madoo, located on two acres on the south shore of eastern Long Island, is the garden of artist Robert Dash. "Madoo" is derived from an old Scottish word meaning "my dove". The New York Times called Madoo "Robert Dash's ever-changing masterpiece." Begun in 1967, the garden’s fundamental tenant has always been that “plants are the dominating forms, structures are secondary.” The garden is open Wednesday and Saturday from May until the end of September.
