Mysterious Webs

It's Halloween and homes are decorated with spooky ghosts floating in the trees, gravestones erupting from the lawn and pumpkins with ghoulish grins glowing on the front porch.  And then there are spider webs; big ones that … [Continue Reading]

American Cranberry

If my back yard birds got to vote on which trees they favor most for habitat and berries, I know the American Cranberry, Viburnum trilobum, would be at the top of their list (it is certainly on the top of mine). American … [Continue Reading]

Between the stands of ancient beeches, maples and chestnuts, the expansive and […]

Innisfree

Imagine a garden designed to delight us visually and sensually, as well as addressing the often neglected sense of sound.  Using a story high fountain, rambling brooks tumbling over carefully placed stones and a gorgeous forty acre lake; the sound of water soothes visitors, while the reflective surfaces incorporate the sky and surrounding hillside into this breathtaking atmosphere. 

Connecticut Flower & Garden Show 2015
