I have been gardening at the same southwestern Connecticut house for more than twenty years. During that time it has gone lawn with a few shrubs to a picturesque garden with paths and curved beds loaded with flowers. I have planted trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals.
It used to be entirely shady, but a few severe storms has turned my front yard into a sunny border. The back is mostly shady with three enormous trees that were ancient when I moved here.
Some of the beds are double-dug and some places I shoe-horned plants into the root-ridden clay and rocks that passes for soil.
I just started this website and I hope to share my obsession with others.
This page shows everything about my favorite flowers (and a few non-flowering plants, too)
I have lots of opinions...
Science meets art meets frugality.
