Join Us On The Big Book of Faces

The layers of color in Gordon and Mary Hayward's Vermont garden would lend themselves well to the artist's brush.

Don't forget to join us on Facebook at Notes From Juniper Hill, where you'll find daily postings of what's going on here at the farm, as well as original photos of gardens and interiors, links to important events in the world of gardening, art, shares from other gardeners, new and unusual plants, and comments and interactions from friends near and far.  You can find us on Facebook by clicking here.  We would love to have you join us!  Here's a sample of some postings from just the last 24 hours.

Just a sample of the incredible stonework of Dan Snow in the Berg garden, Walpole, New Hampshire. For more about Dan…www.dansnowstoneworks.com
Here's another shot of that Netpeta 'Walkers Low' hedge from another angle. We like to layer hedges with different foliage textures and then shape them in slightly different forms. In addition to the low, flowering hedge of Nepeta, also visible in this photo are hedges of boxwood, (Buxus 'Winter Gem'), yew (Taxus 'Hicksii') and privet (Ligustrum amurense).
Simplify, simplify.
It's peony time at Juniper Hill as they line several paths, including this one that borders the Zen Garden.
Ladybird poppies (Papaver commutatum) really light up a corner of Helen O'Donnell's Vermont garden. Papaver commutatum was originally developed by William Thompson in 1876 from a species introduced from Russia. William Thompson published his first plant catalog in 1855 and went on to launch the Thompson and Morgan seed company, which is still going strong today and still offering Ladybird Poppy seeds: http://bit.ly/18ci8Nb.

Notes from Juniper Hill shared Plantswise by Tovah Martin's photo.

To make amends for being off the screen, I'm going to bring you along with me to LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton, LI where I was this weekend. Prepare to be awed, because I certainly was transported. This is gardening at its best. Better still = go visit. You owe it to yourself. Where to begin?
