An Update on My Gardens at Lily Pond

Both Jocelyn (who works on the blog with me) and I were taken by surprise with the new format of the blog- from clicks to scroll. There are changes involving Picasa, WordPress and Google all of which help power the blog. We are working through the glitches now and hope that we will be able to deliver a blog that runs smoothly as a scroll, with photos that can be enlarged for more detailed views, with easy access to "comments" and other blogs, and easy to read captions on all devices from desktop computers, to iPads to mobile devices of all sorts.
We love that you all love the blog and find it informative and useful, and we want it to be as easy to use as possible. Changes will occur and we beg you to have a bit of patience until all is ironed out.
As for the sling on my left arm- I had a clumsy fall off my horse a couple weeks ago - the low branch that swept me off Rutger's back has been removed from its Catalpa tree and my arm is on the mend. Not to worry!!! Thanks for the concern however.  --Martha

My gardens at Lily Pond are thriving.

Every year, I try to make several visits to my home in East Hampton, New York - especially during summer when I can check out the gardens in full bloom, and see how the perennials and other plantings have progressed. As you know, many of the beds have been planted for years, while others have been transformed and revitalized.

I wanted to share with you how much everything has grown - it all looks so amazing and beautiful this season. Enjoy my photos.
