Catskill Gardens

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

it’s all about the light . . .

This year I was hoping to get one of my favorite photographers to shoot the property as my pictures just don’t cut it. But then Covid hit and I’ve limited contractors to enter house out of extreme precaution. Disappointed as I could not update my website or Airbnb profile. But then I received this text from a guest who just pulled up the driveway to this view:
“OMG, Lu! We have successfully arrived and it is a thousand times more gorgeous than the beautiful pictures made even made it seem. I am in heaven.” As a Superhost, going above and beyond is the norm, but making it truly special and unforgettable is what it’s all about! #airbnb #cabin #superhost #roxburyny #catskillgardens #catskills #upstateny #getaway #vacation

A plant doesn’t have a voice but what if a bird could sing for it?
Which bird for which plant? Joe Pye Weed & the Cat Bird. When we moved here 23 years ago there was no Joe Pye Weed but plenty of Cat birds. Now the meadow below and the area around the pond is full of the plant. #donstathamblog #totemfarmgarden #catbird #joepyeweed #meadows #catskillgardens #Eutrochiumpurpureum #oneplantonebird #augustgarden
