The color, scents and sounds of the seasonal gardens help to renew your body and your soul. Each season brings a new and exciting palate of colorful flowers as well as the multiplicity of songs of the many local species of birds. Relax on the deck, sit, or walk through the grounds and enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds you.

The Golden Pineapple ArborThe Golden Pineapple Sign in SummerThe arbor at the beginning of the front entrance walkway of the Golden Pineapple is famed with flowery trumpet vines in Spring and Summer.If you are quiet and wait patiently, you will likely see feeding hummingbirds. The Golden Pineapple sign sits amidst a colorful cutting garden which continues to evolve, changing with every season (shown here at the peak of summer).

Bistro tables in the yard of the Golden PineappleThe Golden Pineapple Grape ArborAs you stroll around the grounds, you will notice there are many little "nooks and crannies" where you can stop, reflect, read a book, meditate or nap. Your hosts, Tom and Jennifer have designed the grounds to allow for tranquility, whether you only have ten minutes to spend on the way to a party or the entire afternoon to enjoy the setting .

The Golden Pineapple Bird BathsThe sounds made by the Golden Pineapple fountains bring delight to guestsThe soothing sounds of the garden fountains and bird song provides a tranquil backdrop from which to observe birds splashing in the birdbaths and butterflies dancing on the flowers. The sounds of crickets and tree frogs will lull you to sleep at night. On sunny days, there is always a part of the garden in the sun, but there is also always ample filtered sun and shade on the deck or throughout the property.

At night the deck is lighted with small white lights and on cool evenings Tom sets a fire in the chimenia.

Ample seating is available on the grounds of the Golden PineappleWhile there is much exploring available in Port Jefferson, some guests choose to visit their family and friends in the garden. The back yard is private and offers many larger tables and lounge chairs.It also provides a great space in which to unwind and renew oneself after a conference or social gathering .It is amazing how easy it is to enjoy someone else's gardens. It is relaxing when you don't have to get up and water a parched plant or even mow the lawn. Watch the sunlight and clouds throw their shadows while listening to the chirping of the birds.
