Today’s photos are from Heather Halsey in Sudbury, Massachusetts. Heather says, “I have been gardening for about 10 years, starting in my tiny apartment city garden to my now one-acre yard in Sudbury. I just love it.
“I am a stay-at-home mother of two kids, a boy and girl. They help me in the garden and they both know almost all of the plants and bushes by name. I even heard my 8-year-old son once look at an urn and identify ‘the thriller, the filler, and the spiller.’ I am still very much an amateur…learning how to split, propagate, and prune for the best results. I love to talk about, think about, and dream about gardening.
“I love watching my children grow and develop into wonderful people…every year they are alive, they get better and better. I have found gardening to be similar to the nurturing experience I have as a mother–the more you put into it the more you get out of it.”
So true, Heather. And if my daughter ever points out the thriller, filler, and spiller, I think I’ll pass out from the joy! In addition to your beautiful plantings, I must say that I covet your clean, crisp edges. How the heck do you do that??
