Cut Flowers

I am able to assemble one or two large cut flower arrangements from my garden every year. Here's the past several years' worth.

"Pretty Carolyn. This would inspire me to get one of those riding mowers. As it is, we're too hilly here and the lawn gets to be less and less (more garden borders)...but there is something very appealing about this look!"

My Garden

My yard and garden are very small (7500 sq ft). I have about 10 rose bushes stuck here and there among all sorts of perennials. I like to "try" varieties to see which ones are successful and add more of those as the seasons go by. The resulting garden is quite a hodge podge!

It's really silly for me to buy seeds because I never work hard enough at starting them for them to be of any use. But this time of year it's so hard to resist the temptation to prepare for spring planting! I always think, if I don't get around to starting the seeds indoors, I'll at least put them in the ground in May and hope they do ok.… Continue

You're way overdue for a ribbon! Also, with all those roses you must have a very large rose garden...how about showing it to us with a picture?

"Thank you, Keryn. Our street (and the whole town) does have lots of lovely big old tall trees. Our commute to and from NYC to work is about 90 minutes each way, but it's a price we are willing to pay to live here."

Fall Foliage on Trip to Pennsylvania

"Thanks Keryn. I was really impressed, too, with the fall colors I saw on this trip. I've never seen them so vibrant. Not all of the roads look like this in the U.S. This just happened to be one that was recently paved."
