Last Saturday I spent the afternoon roaming around the gardens at North Hill in Southern Vermont. This was a real treat since this marks the first time the garden has been open to the public so early in the season.( This year the garden will be open every Friday and Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00 P.M. through October). The weather was perfect for the last day of April. There were many small treasures blooming throughout the garden. A nice seletion of Corydalis solida were still in bloom and the hellebores were at their best. The most spectacular show was the thousands of daffodils planted in the upper meadow backed by a row of forsythia.
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.
