Is there any better combination than gardens and books? I'd like to share a special garden blog that I host, featuring the garden spots and favorite writing hideaways of over forty novelists – the authors of some of my favorite books. Click on the logo photo above and enjoy your tour!
Just wanted to share a few "before and after" shots, from the day our Realtor showed us the house, until today, August 1. Five years later, what a difference.
BEFOREThe hot tub didn't work and we didn't really care to have one anyway, so we gave it to some friends of ours and added the stairs leading to a flagstone patio.
We planted an Autumn Blaze maple, left and replaced the ash tree that died with a Siberian Elm (Lacebark Elm), right. We also planted a Chanticleer Pear and Korean Sun Pear in the back yard (along with the evergreens along the fences) and several other large trees in the front yard. In a few years, we should have the leafy shade we want.
