The Barry Sturgeon Garden- Update

During the course of summer and fall I added many new plants to the Barry Sturgeon Garden, and added some structure in the form of a bird feeder, Japanese maple, two rhododendrons and six red twig dogwood for winter color,  I developed a back path behind the benches and began the multi-year task to forming a border between garden and wood with the addition of several divided hostas or ones which simply had outgrown their space in the older beds. I transplanted many wheelbarrows of sod to establish the paths. Placing my annual order with Van Englen bulbs meant the arrival  of 600 daffodil bulbs along with some tulips and hyacinths. I placed 100 of them in this garden to trumpet the arrival of spring 2016!
