Greetings from the Northeast!! I started on this sit about five years ago. I was new to everything, but I subscribed to the theory that more is more. Now I don't consider myself so new anymore, but, in spite of the warnings, I still put more plants in one space than anyone. I go for the gusto. Happy to be in Boston in my new very old house. I have included my front garden...starting year three...picture is year two...except for the boxwood foundation, everything is new...the shrubs, the trees, the perennials, the annuals. I did away with most of the grass. Good day, Everyone!!
