We have had an early spring here in upstate New York. For the past week the temperatures have been in the sixties during the day. I have gotten ahead on garden cleanup and started screening compost. Snowdrops and a few hellebores have been blooming for awhile and. the first Iris retculata opened today.(11days earlier than last year).
I am a garden designer and plant collector living in upstate New York with my wife Kathy. Last year we gave up a twenty year garden and moved to be close to our Grandson. We are starting a new adventure and new gardens. My specialty is shade plants.
