Yew Trees for My Living Maze

A selection of yew trees, Taxus, a coniferous evergreen, related to pines, spruces, firs, cedars, and cypress now fills another section of my living maze.

My three-acre living maze is located in a pasture just outside my Winter House. As many of you know, I designed this garden maze last year, and already we've planted more than a third of the space. The area is a growing puzzle of tall plantings - tall enough to prevent those walking through from seeing the paths ahead. The maze includes rows, openings, and various dead ends, but only one true route leading to the center - all according to a very detailed map I created. It's a huge undertaking, but I am so pleased with its progress.
