The Gardens Around My Tenant House

Many of the flowering plants around my Bedford, New York farm have past their prime, but there's still a lot of beautiful and interesting foliage to enjoy.

Some of the most beautiful growth is behind and around my Tenant House, where my daughter and grandchildren stay when they visit. In these areas we planted Epimediums, ferns, Syneilesis, wild ginger, hostas, lady's mantle, and other shade-loving specimens. They're surrounded by a variety of some of my favorite trees - Stewartia, Cotinus, and Japanese maple. And at one side of the garden bed is my stand of tall and stately bald cypress.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
