Yesterday I went to hear Page Dickey speak at the Berkshire Botanical Garden in Stockbridge Massechucetts She gave a great talk called Embroidered Ground (which is also the name of her new book) which delt with her 29 year old garden and how it has changed over the years. After the program I walked around the gardens checking out the early bulbs and hellebores in bloom.
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.
