Tired of day-to-day living in New York City, I purchased my first home in 1990 in beautiful Bucks County, PA This 1850’s tenant farmhouse was built with upright logs reclaimed from barges abandoned nearby with the introduction of the railroads. It was barely inhabitable when I moved in, without a front door for three weeks as I planned my first gardens. This piece of heaven reminded me of my family home in Livingston, Kentucky. Both country houses are surrounded by protected land, sit snugly on the road, and enjoy a river/ stream running out back. We make improvements every year (including a formal garden, terraced perennial border, woodland garden, raise-bed vegetable / herb garden, bluestone patio, tree fort, screened-in sleeping porch, and potting shed). The vivid pink azaleas, single rhododendron, and lilacs remind me each year of spring’s arrival.
