Removing the Burlap Around My Winter House

Despite these trying times, there is still so much beauty to enjoy outdoors - spring officially begins in two days.

At my Bedford, New York farm, we are all heeding national guidelines to keep our distance from colleagues, wash our hands frequently, and remain at home if not feeling well. We are also taking advantage of the mild weather and working outdoors in the fresh air as much as possible. Yesterday, the crew began removing all the burlap around the farm, exposing the lush green boxwood that has been covered all winter long. The entire process is a big undertaking; however, knowing my plants are protected in the cold is a great comfort. And, seeing all the healthy, intact shrubbery and foliage at the start of a new season is an even greater delight.

Enjoy these photos and please stay in good health.
