Winterizing the Terrace at Skylands

Hard to believe it's already October - the summer seems to have flown by so quickly, as it does every year!

It's been about four and a half months since we planted the terrace at Skylands, my tranquil home in Seal Harbor Maine. If you recall, I go up there every spring to fill the containers with lovely tropical specimens. Once the temperatures dip in autumn, it's time to remove all the plants from their heavy stone planters and prepare them for the ride back to my Bedford, New York farm, where they reside during winter.

Last week, my gardening crew at Skylands - Mike Harding, Wendy Norling and Chris Koppel - completed this huge task, while Cheryl Dulong documented the transformation. Enjoy these photos.
