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!

The chair beckons and in my mind's eye, I sit and smile. Focal points keep us grounded even if we never reach them. #catskillgardens #littlelimehydrangea #meditationspace #hamlet ...

Callicarpa americana, or American beautyberry, is another native shrub that looks great in the garden and in floral arrangements. Unfortunately, the berries tend to shatter which means they are not ideal for dried arrangements. Love this color! #callicarpa #beautyberry #nativeshrubs #berries #catskillgardens #naturephotography #landscapedesign #elmgardendesign ...

This huge rugosa garden (not my idea!! - I tried to talk the client out of it) was created 6 years ago. It is such a beast to keep looking good.

love this weird combination of plants. it evolved over many years as things died and changed; it was definitely not planned or designed but a series of choices over time. sometimes things evolves nicely through incremental choices:

Cornus kousa ‘Wolf Eyes’
Symphytum x uplandicum 'Axminster Gold' - from elysium214
Tanacetum parthenium 'Aureum' - from elysium214
Mukdenia rossii 'Crimson Fans'
Picea mariana 'Nana'
Dianthus ‘Firewitch’
Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue'
Lysimachia lanceolata
Pinus banksiana 'Uncle Fogy'
Sedum Kamtschaticum ‘Variegatum’
Aralia cordata ‘Sun King’
Abies koreana ‘Icebreaker’

We have steadily been working away on all our fall clean ups for the gardens we have installed over the years. I have actually never sat on this bench before, but this has always been one of my favorite vignettes. Early new year's resolution is to find better balance in our lives and I think I will start by putting 'sitting on this bench next year' at the top of my list. Tree is crabapple 'Royal Raindrops'. #gardendesign #catskillgardens #barnscape #gardenbench #elmgardendesign ...

The orchestration of summer is building its tempo. Wildflowers, perennials, the Dahlia tubers I kept safe in a cooler all winter and the sunflowers I sowed in March all work together now, supporting the bees hummingbirds and butterflies. It’s such a sense of joy to look over what I’ve so carefully tended. ...

Excited to get the #Limelight Hydrangeas and #Paul’sGloryHostas along our pathway. There’s a lot of room for other plants but I thought this was a good start. Thank you stephanie_cristalli for your gardening inspiration. You have the best hydrangeas ever. I miss my yearly bouquet so much I had to plant my own!!
