Today’s photos are from Suzanne Sayers in central Connecticut. She says, “I’m a certified master gardener and have been gardening for about 14 years now. We’ve transformed our little 1/4 of an acre yard (which doesn’t seem so small), into a gardening oasis.
I garden 100% organically, which means we use no pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers on plants or grass. I try to use as many native species as I can. My garden is mostly sun, but I’ve planted about a dozen trees since living here, which has helped to create some shady pockets. I plant very few annuals, and love to plant as many different hardy types of succulents as I can, which helps to cut down tremendously on watering, and they’re also beautiful!
I also incorporate garden art into my beds (pieces by me and other artists). It adds a whimsical touch. Our garden was featured on a local garden tour two years ago, and although I was very nervous about having over 500 people parade through my yard, it was such a fun experience and I hope to do it again one day.”
I’d totally tour your garden, Suzanne, it’s so charming and pretty, and it’s so close by! Keep me posted…. And thanks for sharing!
