Garden chronicles; buffy's tear drop

In 2004 we added buffy to our garden after a couple of wonderful trips to Yellowstone. Our old house was nothing but acres of steep hills, we had to chisel in a wee corner to level a spot for her cloven hooves as she perched on the side hill.





this weekend buffy moved to a more prominent spot at the new house, she is tucked into a level tear drop shaped entry driveway. she will spear head a dry color garden, dotted with grasses and gray, blue, yellow and white swaths of color. the heavy end of the tear drop will be anchored with a gazebo and lemon trees, we think she will be delighted to be featured front and center in the years to come.

  1. Can't wait to see your new garden this year! I'm finally getting a little greenhouse and I was trying to find some of your greenhouse photos. I loved your little greenhouse space and the way you had it decorated!

    1. Congrats on your future gh, you will have LOADS of fun! My old greenhouse was tucked into a deck corner, oddly snapped and SMALL, but it cranked out 1000s and 1000s of plants! I will have a new one here, struggling where to put it, it's colder here and I worry about being freestanding, verses tucked against the barn wall. I want a conservatory too by the future rose garden, of course I haven't told my husband that means a couple of new buildings just for me! having level land has brought out the beast in me, but I must temper my enthusiasm knowing that as we age I need to be able to tend to my new gardens and not bite off more than I can chew :-( but for now my dreams are great fun!

  2. A new house? Will it have the immense gardens of before? A view? Did you keep the beach house? Oh, so many questions......
    Congratulations!
