My home was built in 1873. It has been a tremendous source of enjoyment as well as work over the years. We have lived here for over 20 years and I imagine we will be its caretaker for sometime to come. The pictures I have posted are of my back garden and were taken in the Fall. The Heritage Oak is estimated to be over 250 years old. It is the focal point of the yard and one of the many reasons why we fell in love with this house in the first place. Many of the oak leaves are down now. (It is a tremendous amount of work at this time of year.) We have a Koi pond that my son and husband dug many years ago. It has remained one of my husbands favorite feature of the garden.
As with most gardens, it is a work in progress. Always growing, changing and evolving with the years and the seasons. Over the last few years I have added many of the boxwoods. I love them. I love the more formal look they give the garden. I also love that they remind me of Williamsburg Virginia - a favorite place of mine.
Happy New Year to all! I look forward to posting more pictures soon.
