This winter has been snowy and cold so far. We are supposed to go well below zero tonight. The month of January has been a snowy one with at least one storm a week. As much as I dislike winter it does give me time to read other blogs, study garden catalogs and work on upcoming talks that I am giving this year. I am having a half dozen trees cut down that were in bad shape or in a bad location. This will allow me room to add shrubs and smaller trees to help form the bones of the new garden.
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.
