Embraceable Pines

I grow a lot of evergreens; from shrubs right up to the big spruces, and let's face it-some of those needles are downright nasty.  When I have to prune my blue spruce or low growing junipers, it's ouch, ouch, ouch-even with … [Continue Reading]

Planting Bulbs

As fall settles into summer's time slot, we're given an opportunity to put down our pruners and gloves and reflect back on the wonders of this year's garden.  And as bygone sugarplum plants dance in our heads, we may want to … [Continue Reading]

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]

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]

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 […]

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 […]
