The front garden bordering the driveway.
Now that we are slowly
getting past the coldest part of winter here in upstate New York, and with temperatures some nights still dropping down to below zero, I thought it would be encouraging for my readers to see some photos of things to come. I’ve assembled some pictures of my garden, seen at its peak last July, when the days were warm, sunny and bright, and the perennials and annuals were looking their best.
These four shots show part of the front garden taken from different angles.
Here are some of the flowers that border my neighbor’s property.
Now we’re out back, close to the house.
These photos are of the great border, out back, that runs across the west side of my property.
A look at the long walk, viewed from the west and east. The fluffy pink bush at the far end, closest to the house, is a Tamarack.
So there you have it, a little tour of my garden here at Whimsey Hill House. I hope the photos inspired you in some way. Let’s now all look forward to Spring and the possibilities and joy the garden will soon provide, not to mention all the weeding and hard work that goes with it ;-}
