Bonny Verbena

I'm not much of an annual lover.  Don't get me wrong, I always make up a few containers and window boxes every year (even though I find the daily watering and fertilizing quite tedious).  Annuals are also great for filling in … [Continue Reading]

Wethersfield Garden

I've visited some wonderful gardens this year; a few with magnificent ocean or river views, others with incredible landscapes flush with foliage and flowers.  And just when I thought the season was winding down, I found one … [Continue Reading]

Iron Maiden

Our native ironweed, Vernonia noveboracensis, is an extraordinary beauty with massive deep violet blooms atop stems that can reach over 5 feet tall; standing as proudly in your garden as she does in the local meadow.  Like … [Continue Reading]

Mighty Metasequoia

For a tree with majesty and presence, I can think of nothing grander than the Dawn Redwood, Metasequoia glyptostroboides.  This king among trees is worth considering if you have a moist area and the room to accommodate a … [Continue Reading]

Shades of Grey

As summer winds down and fall colors blaze, a few soothers can help balance the display.  And that's where grey foliage serves as a welcome moderator.  Surprisingly, grey plants can add more drama than some of the boldest … [Continue Reading]

I’m not much of an annual lover.  Don’t get me wrong, I always make up a few containers and window boxes every year (even though I find the daily watering and fertilizing quite tedious).  Annuals are also great for filling in those open spots that mysteriously appear (after what I suspect were major vole fests).  And I have the […]

Our native ironweed, Vernonia noveboracensis, is an extraordinary beauty with massive deep violet blooms atop stems that can reach over 5 feet tall; standing as proudly in your garden as she does in the local meadow.  Like Lady Liberty, vernonia carries her purple torches high to illuminate late summer gardens filled with golden rudbeckia and […]

For a tree with majesty and presence, I can think of nothing grander than the Dawn Redwood, Metasequoia glyptostroboides.  This king among trees is worth considering if you have a moist area and the room to accommodate a large tree.  And I mean large.  Under the right conditions, Metasequoia is a fast growing tree; growing […]

As summer winds down and fall colors blaze, a few soothers can help balance the display.  And that’s where grey foliage serves as a welcome moderator.  Surprisingly, grey plants can add more drama than some of the boldest flowers and foliage.  By simply mixing some different silver leaved forms and textures, you can create a visual wonderland […]

On its first day, approximately 1,800 vehicles and 150,000 people crossed the 1.1 mile span between Manhattan and Brooklyn, with Emily Warren Roebling (wife of Washington Roebling) as the […]

Boscobel House & Gardens

Although its foundation is now firmly planted on the soil of Garrison, New York, the magnificent Boscobel house did not originate there. Instead, the stately residence was moved from Montrose, New York (about 15 miles away), where building was completed for the Dyckman family in 1808. States Dyckman envisioned his future home as a sanctuary […]
