Catskill Gardens Photo Stream

With so many obstacles—deer, groundhogs, rabbits, bears, cold long winter, unpredictable weather, etc.—gardening in the Catskills is not a piece of cake. But with a little perseverance and patience, the rewards are spectacular!

Golden light shining on all the new grasses and shrubs we picked up pondside_nursery for the backbone of the new red house gardens. ...

Another reason to love Iris germanica: sword shaped foliage catches setting sun.

This saturated and stormy August has been a bit of a damper on our foraging & outdoor work but our gardens are absolutely thriving in it. The tropicals we interplanted with the grasses and shrubs are bursting with all the humidity and moist soil. The Red House looks like it’s beginning to be engulfed by the garden and that’s just the way we like it. .

Taking in the last of our beloved tropicals before the inevitable frost that will come. But for right now I’m really pleased with how this container at the red house filled out and how the vignette developed around it. Turning a huge steel duct into the centerpiece of our garden is just one of the fun ah-ha things we cultivate constantly around our home and gardens to great effect. .
