READER PHOTOS! More from Terie's garden in New Yorkcomments (13) February 10th, 2012 in blogs
Back to business! Today's photos are from Terie Rawn in Newfield, New York. We featured Terie's charming garden cottage back on January 24th. (Click here to revisit it). I'd hoped that Terie would send more photos of her obviously gorgeous garden, and here they are! Terie says, "Ten years ago we spent the summer months clearing this area to extend the side yard. Wild grape vine, multiflora rose, and other underbrush were removed to make way for a garden peninsula. Just behind it would be a grass path. I amended the woods floor with wheel barrels of composted leaf mulch, peat moss, and top soil. After defining its shape, we let garden rest until the following spring. Plant divisions, friends' contributions, and local green house visits gradually filled in the blanks. The following year we decided to develop the right side of the path, so continued to clear. I built mini rock walls with stone from our property." Click on each of the photos for captions that tell the rest of the story. Thanks, Terie! Feel free to send us more, more, more!
