Terrie and Bud have worked together to create a lovely garden space, complete with a special pond.
"We added this pond 10 years ago. Water lily, Purple Pickerel has been well behaved. A few years ago Bud built a platform beneath majestic maples where we enjoy reprieve, surrounded by ligularia (the rocket), brunnera, hosta and a hammock. Springs feed the pond from above and beneath. Water ripples continually from bass movement. Our turtle, Lucky, suns at waters edge and occasionally on a lily pad. Because of the pond, waters are now restricted and Bud was able to build our Garden Cottage. Last fall I brightened the interior by white-washing."
