Our Garden


      Our garden consists of several small gardens around the house and a large (o.75 acre) woodland garden separated from the house by a dry creek bed. The woodland garden is a long, narrow plot (300' x 100') traversed by two paths through the length of the garden. The garden slopes across these paths creating a loop trail with upper and lower paths that begin just beyond the dry creek bed and extend to the back of the property.

       In some years, rainy weather or a week of hot days have conspired to deny us the pleasures shown in these two gardens. But there have been three years when spring was delayed by a week: by a cool winter in 2010 and two cold winter weeks in 2013 and 2015. The three Web pages that follow show that garden during these three springs. We hope you enjoy them.
