Carolyn Faulkner gardens in Brunswick, Maine on approximately 3 acres.

"Over the past few years, I have developed a keen interest in all things woodland.  Gardening in the shade provides a welcome respite from the heat of summer and lower maintenance due to fewer weeds.  These pictures represent the back section of my yard.  I also have several sunny borders, a 30'x30' vegetable garden and a beehive in my yard.  Gardening is my favorite pastime for sure - enjoy!"
