About My Garden

Click here to see each garden over time, and the trees, shrubs, vines, perennials and bulbs I have planted in my gardens and in the wild meadow and hill behind our lot.

It's a half acre suburban lot, surrounded by meadow and remnant woods. It was a bare builder's lot in 2004. Over many years I added landscaping around the house and planted trees behind us to create a little forest.

We are in northern Connecticut, zone 6 on the map but we seem to be in a microclimate between two ridges that really makes us zone 5.
