Today we’re in Wayne, Pennsylvania, visiting Wendy Quereau’s incredible garden.
I’ve been gardening here for 43 years and have been trying recently to reduce maintenance by adding shrubs in place of the labor-intensive perennials. I’m still hooked by the inherent joy of growing and designing but admit that I look forward to the winter break.
