A Pic of my Garden
In Erin's recent thread I was asked for a pic of my shade garden so here is an overall view.
Thirty eight years ago when I first acquired this property, a riding ring was located where this garden stands today. The first year I was here as part of a reforestation effort, I planted about 1000 white pine seedlings on a couple of acres including this part of the property. Voila, today stands a forest. Ten years ago, I cleared a few trees to open some space and began the process of amending the soil, clearing brush and building gardens including those "famous" flagstone walkways.
One goal was to nake a quiet haven where I could enjoy a cool stroll on a summers day ... a second goal was to create an interpretation of infinity. The pic was taken in June 2011 and showed a view of the length of the garden some 150 feet from where I stood to the property line.
