When I put the call out for photos a couple of weeks ago in exchange for a chance to win a free gardening book, Veronica Guyre in Lyme, New Hampshire (USDA Hardiness Zone 4b), decided to throw her hat in the ring. We’ve heard from Veronica before. We featured a couple of plant combos from her garden back in 2010 (refresh your memory HERE and HERE). But who knew that when you back off from these close-in shots, you’d find this STUNNING garden? WOWSERS!!
Veronica says, “My husband and I have been reclaiming this previous gravel pit property for the past nine years. Much input was necessary from county and state agricultural consultants and a complete assessment of the 54 acres was made by the county department.
“Working this abused property, on top of gravel and sand, is a constant challenge for both my husband and me. I have enclosed a ‘before’ photo of the sand and gravel pit after its final leveling. Several pines and birch were rescued before building and hardscaping and are now close to 20 feet tall. Over the years we’ve planted trees, shrubs, a perennial border along the driveway, and an enclosed vegetable garden that has a stone path and a pergola by the house.” Well. I’m speechless. How about you guys?
