View from the Bedroom Window in Heath

The views from two windows show what we are leaving and where we are going. Over the past couple of years I have been documenting the view from our bedroom in Heath, marking the changes in the seasons. These photos of the  foreground view of the lawn gardens, the mid-ground view of the fields and the background view of the hills are what we have enjoyed living with, admiring and working with for 35 years.  We continue to enjoy and work on this plot of land, but our focus is broadening to encompass a new garden in the making in Greenfield.

The West Garden in Greenfield does not yet show the graceful beds and paths that I imagine, but there are hints that can be seen. The placement of the waterloving shrubs is visible, but we have planted perennials that are too small to make a photographic impact. Most of these perennials like Siberian and Japanese irises, mistflower, culvers root, joe pye weed and others are also wet tolerant if not water loving.

The latest addition to the West Garden is the new fence that changes the whole feeling of the garden. It defines the spece so that we can really see the spot that is intended for our blueberry patch, as well as support for some climbers. By this time next week I expect/hope to have the plantings done. The last bit of loam will be gone, but there may still be some compost. I don’t think it will take long to use up.

What next?  I’m not sure. We are taking this step by step.

  • Love the pictures & it’s great to see the garden coming together. Wishing you a happy Wordless Wednesday 🙂

  • Very nice garden 🙂
    Have a lawntastic week 🙂

  • I think you will be so pleased with your new fence. When I moved from wide open spaces to the city I didn’t really like fences but I have found that good fences make good neighbors. PLus as you say it can be a trellis, art display area… Fun watching your garden evolve.

  • Awww you have an amazing view and so much space to nurture! I really wanted a garden even a small one. We only have a small terrace for our potted plants.

    Anita – It is good to be able to see some progress.
    Steve – the garden gets nicer every day.
    Lisa – I am looking forward to using the fence as a trellis base.
    Merlinda – We do have a lot of space still, but there are benefits to a very small garden too. Enjoy your plants.

  • it is fun to see the changes you are making!

    The Greenfield garden reminds me of many gardens on Ground Force, the old Alan Titchmarsh show that was on BBC America. I love gardens like this. I’ve tried to turn the area off my kitchen into such a spot.
