Last year, the magazine sent a photographer to our property to capture it from winter to spring and summer through to fall. The result is four articles about different parts of our garden.
I wrote two of the stories, one on the gardens around the house, and the other on our formal parterre, which I call the four-square garden. Karen York wrote a piece about our naturalized farm pond and the crab-apple orchard that surrounds it, while Judith Adam tackled our wildflower meadow.
It’s certainly a heady experience to have our garden chronicled this way. I hope you’ll be able to pick up a copy of the magazine. If you’re not a regular subscriber, click on 2011 Annual Great Garden Guide for more information, and you can order it via their website. You will also be able to buy this issue on the newsstands in Canada beginning Jan. 24th (it is supposed to be on display until April 30th). Closer to spring, watch for the Canadian Gardening April 2011 issue, which will feature my husband’s John’s rock garden, in another article by Karen York.
I hope you enjoy the articles. If you pick up the magazine, let me know what you think.
