Petra's part-time garden in Vermont (8 photos)comments (18) October 29th, 2013 in blogs
Today's photos are from Petra Williams in Vermont. She says, "My husband and I bought a small ski house in the Green Mountains in 1999. Initially I wasn't going to have a garden; we are only there 2-3 weekends a month and a week during the summer. However, the urge to put in a plant here and there was difficult to resist. My arrangement with my plants was, "I plant you and you grow." Mostly that works. Of course now the garden beds have multiplied and when I'm there, I spend the entire weekend weeding and, if we've had no rain, watering." Yeah, good luck resisting the call of gardening when presented with a blank slate... :-) You'd never know it's a part-time garden, Petra, it's super-duper nice! That courtyard is particularly dreamy. Thanks so much for sharing. Love the autumn pics (hint, hint, everyone!). Be sure to send spring/summer pics next year!
**** The push is still on--get outside and take some last minute shots, or compile a few you took earlier in the season. I'll be eternally grateful.... Email them to GPOD@taunton.com. Thanks! ****
