About my Gardens
Welcome to my garden, a small, private, country garden dedicated to the idea that gardening should be a fun and pleasurable experience – good for the body and soul.
I am a collector of plants- if it will grow in northern Montana I probably want it. This lends itself to an informal style garden tied together with stone paths, picket fences, iron gates and arbors. After all, gardens are meant to be lived in.
Trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, herbs and vegetables all have their place in the sun. No doubt I break a few garden design rules but it all seems to come together in the end. The gardens appeal to all of your senses, filled with the color of flowers, the scent of herbs, the sound of splashing water and the taste of fresh vegetables. Touching is encouraged, as are questions.
Handmade iron and glass decor is found throughout the gardens. There are herb and vegetable gardens, strawberries, asparagus, raspberries and apples. A sand box and child sized tea table welcomes kids. Should you ever visit, we encourage you to stroll around, sit in a lawn chair, pick your own vegetables and flowers or make your own tea from the herb garden.
