Today’s photos are from Jana Milbocker in Holliston, Massachusetts. Jana says, “I have been gardening on my 2-acre property located 25 miles west of Boston for 20 years. When we bought our 100-year-old house, towering maples, oaks and Norway spruces, overgrown rhododendrons and 2 green hostas constituted the garden.
“I was a complete novice, and my frugal garden began with flowers grown from seed, rooted cuttings of shrubs, and perennial divisions donated by family and friends. As my interest in horticulture grew, so did my collection. Now the garden features more than 140 varieties of trees and shrubs, perennial gardens, peony and rose beds, water features and shady retreats.
“Some of my favorite plants include viburnums, hellebores, hydrangeas, and peonies, and I enjoy propagating my plants and sharing with others. In addition to hours of fun outside, my gardening hobby has lead to many new friendships, continuing education, and a new business in garden design, writing and lecturing.”
Beautiful, Jana. I feel like you’ve captured the spirit of New England in your garden. Thanks for sharing!
