The Garden that Love Built

Peggy Pemberton-Carter met Prince Nicholas Abkhazi, in Paris in 1922, a prince from a surviving line of kings from the Black Sea region. They found themselves visiting art galleries and conversing in French but were eventually torn apart during World War II.

Peggy met her prince in New York in November 1946, married him and became the Princess Nicholas Abkhazi. They settled in Victoria, where they built their home atop a one-acre property. For over 40 years they cultivated their garden.

In 2000, The Land Conservancy purchased the property to preserve the Garden, the legacy of the Abkhazis.
