READER PHOTOS! Ann's garden in New Yorkcomments (10) April 30th, 2012 in blogs
Happy Monday! Today's photos are from Ann Vesei in Mount Kisco, New York. Ann says, "I garden on a little 1/3 acre property that used to be shaded and overrun with weeds. Through the last ten years, after my children went off to college, I turned my energy towards my passion for gardening, and now it is everybody's favorite place to spend time in the summer and fall. I like to experiment with plants that are that are just barely within our zone, like camellias, water lilies, even a fig tree. I am also experimenting with contrasting colors and textured, leafy, non-flowering plants. Our garden changes from full sun in the spring to mostly shady by the end of the summer. We made a pond; it is my pride and joy, since frogs, an array of birds, even foxes from our woods come to visit. My favorites are the hummingbirds, which love the butterfly bushes and the nectar we put out for them. It gives me great joy to create a space with so much beauty." Lovely, Ann!
