As Hester awaits he meeting with the governor Pearl peers across the garden and sees a Puritan version of the great gardens of old England. It is practical with cabbages and pumpkin vines, a few rose bushes and apple trees. Like all things Puritan, the garden was a picture of organized austerity. THere was a "grey gloom" about it rather than the fancy ornamentation of a British garden belonging to a man of similar stature.
