Today’s photos are from Midge Sobolewski. She says, “I live in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, near Harrisburg. I have a garden business, doing design, installation, and maintenance. I use my own garden to try out plants and experiment.
“We bought our land 30 years ago. It was a 6-acre cornfield bordering the Appalachian Trail, so it was really a blank slate. I began by planting tree seedlings on the back 5 acres. We kept paths mowed in the ‘woods’ and invasives out and now it really does feel like a forest back there. The area around the house has been planted slowly over time with many different themes.
“These photos highlight the vegetable garden and pond area plus some surprise visitors. As I get older, I’m trying to simplify the plantings, although it’s tempting to plant another area with something new. Last year I began a Japanese maple garden near my tree house.”
Absolutely gorgeous, Midge, every detail! We need LOTS more photos, ASAP. Thanks so much for sharing these!
***I’ll be posting some photos of Fine Gardening‘s favorite show garden at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show tomorrow, plus giving a shout-out to the gardeners I featured in my talk at the show, so stay tuned! (Whew! It’s tough, recovering from several days out of the office, plus jetlag!) In the meantime, I’ve been getting feedback that, while all the snow pics lately are nice, everyone’s feeling the need for more GREEN pics in the GPOD these days. I get it–we’re expecting up to 14 INCHES of snow today, and I think we’re all getting a bit weary of it all…. so I need your help! Send in photos of your gardens from last summer! ([email protected]) Be sure to tell me a bit about yourself and your garden when you send in your pics. You’re much more likely to be featured if I have all that stuff at hand. Thanks, everyone!
