Maude Odgers

Maude's first encounters with gardening came in early childhood, when her mother gave her a small patch of earth to care for. As a result of that experience she has carried a passion for nurturing the earth into adulthood and has been gardening seriously for the past 30 years. She holds a Master Gardener's certificate from UNH and, for over 12 years, has served as a dedicated volunteer with the Peterborough, NH Town Gardens, assisting with both design and maintenance. With the eyes of an artist, and a commitment to create beautiful spaces, she also runs her own garden design business, The Artful Gardener, in Peterborough, New Hampshire.

Rachel is the artist behind Rachel's Garden, a regular post on Notes from Juniper Hill.  As adults, who often lead complex, busy and stressful lives, it's far too easy to lose sight of those early encounters with nature that first captured our imaginations as children. Occasionally, it's good to step back and take a fresh look at things.  And there's no better perspective than to re-examine nature through the eyes of a child.  Rachel's wonderful drawings remind us of exactly why we were so attracted to the wonders of this beautiful world in the first place.
