Exuberance Gardening

Weymouth, MA

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!!

Love your thoughts about exuberance too, Don. One of my favorite garden books is called The Exuberant Garden and the controlling Hand. I'd say you qualify for the sentiments.

Nice winter to treat to have some Gardening Exuberance and I would say you have done the Old House Proud! Want to see more of you and your efforts. Patti

Spring??? Solomon's Seal?, Daffodils by the river, Crocuses, more Crocuses, something?

Looks great, Don! I love the house, and I always love it when people put in more garden than lawn. Lawn is highly overrated. Love the look of it, but very high maintenance.

Year 3 last summer....thanks to Google (both cool and freaky). Still struggling right next to the sidewalk (street). Added meadow sage last fall....it is peaking up this spring....hopefully it will do well in this difficult spot.
