Hey, Terri!

I just now found this!

I agree wholeheartedly about the enjoyment of sharing gardening experiences with other like-minded folks. Here we get the opportunity to delve a bit deeper into the scheme of things; together discussing the whys and hows, what works and what doesn't. Smiling

How are the gardens of Aspen Hill growing this year, and are there any new and exciting additions?

Hi Chelle,

I just saw your post. Sometimes I get online a lot, and other times I realize it has been weeks since I last checked. I've primarily been working on the hillside shade garden. It really is looking better and better each year. I keep adding plants and garden accents, and also expand the area itself a bit each year. I'm lucky to have a woodland backdrop already in place - I just thin out and limb up trees and add plants. I am really amazed at what you have accomplished with the blank slate that you started with!

I think a lot of us from DG, Cubits, and now ATP have found in each other what had been missing in our gardening enjoyment before. I truly am happiest when sharing with people as enthusiastic as I am. I seem to be an introvert, but come into my own when I'm with or talking to other like-minded folks. We just had another mid-atlantic get together at Jill's house (critterologist) on Saturday to try our hand at hypertufa. What a great time.

My newest project is a conservatory addition to the kitchen, and the kitchen remodel itself. Started last summer, still have quite a few things to do before it is finished. I've had to do it piece meal with money and time, but the good news is that I finally have a functioning sink, stove, and fridge. The sink is just the bar sink at the end of the island - the main sink still needs to be put in place - but even doing dishes in a sink that small still beats doing them in the bathtub LOL!

I have so many ideas and stories for this blog feature, but haven't made the time to keep up with it ARGHH... Hope you are having a great summer.

We've had no rain to speak of this year so we're enjoying a rare mosquito-free summer.


Looking forward to seeing what you've been up to, so, if possible, take a few pictures every now and then to share later. Smiling
