"My husband and I came here to Falls Village, CT, three years ago with the determination to have a simpler garden than the one we left behind at Duck Hill, in North Salem, NY, where I gardened intensely for 34 years. We have been only moderately successful. I will show how the garden is developing here at Church House, how it echoes the garden at Duck Hill in some aspects and differs radically in others. Here, there is an emphasis on connecting to and embracing the wild land. I will talk about the shrubs, trees, roses, and perennials I found I couldn’t live without, and the natives here in our rocky limestone habitat that are a new excitement to me."
