I'm a messy gardener. Don't let the lovely macros I sometimes deliver to my photo blog fool you. Over-all, my garden is low-budget, low-maintenance and there are times when I talk to the weeds. :-)

A journal of our humble New England garden. Dedicated to W.P., with love.

Growing Wild


A side garden that has been neglected for years. A mess that I will attempt to clean up one of these years!




Among that tangled mess are a few wild strawberries beginning to show their tiny flowers.




Closer to the river are a couple of patches of wild iris.
