A Garden’s Evolution

After decades of gardening there is one thing I can tell you with certainty; nothing stays the same. Gardens evolve in a number of ways for a number of reasons.

November is a month that can grace us with unseasonably mild temperatures and crisp blue skies; in other words, perfect conditions for strolling through a garden.  So, for the folks at the mall waiting in line […]

Harkness Memorial State Park

In celebration of our anniversary, my husband, Ged, and I visited a gorgeous park overlooking the ocean in Waterford, Connecticut. Well worth the visit, my post will hardly be able to cover all the wonderful aspects worthy of mention on this beautiful estate. 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

There’s only one way to fight a seemingly endless winter; enlist some serious flower power! In my neck of the woods this entailed taking a much needed break from the snow and frigid temps to attend the 34th annual Connecticut Flower & Garden Show, just an hour away at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford.
