CRAZY FOR WING

I love visiting my friend at Wing Cottage, and some visits, such as the one this past weekend, was completely devoted to working in her garden.  Yes, I'm crazy enough to commute three hours to a job site.  But, look at what I get to take in on the way.

A dose of bucolic scenery really does wonders for the soul.  And, seeing hay rolls always amuses me.
They remind me of giant beef braciole.

My friend and I dubbed this planting bed the "Linda Garden".  Over the past few years I've been restoring it from a neglected, haphazard mess, to an eyeful of charming, unpretentious order.  I'm not sure why the previous owner was moved to layering this garden bed with black plastic film and rocks, but doing so certainly made for quite the renovation project for me.  I look forward to my friend sending me a photo of it a month or two from now when it will be in all its blooming fabulousness.

I've never seen lily of the valley plants as lovely and lush as on this property.  They really do thrive here.

And now, for some "art" that occupies this residence, courtesy of my friend's beau, who loves to sculpt with whatever he manages to find during his oddity foraging adventures.......

And, that's the latest scoop from Wing Cottage.

  1. Hi LInda, I saw your comment on another blog and wanted to check out your's. I was intrigued :).

    If you don't mind my asking, where do you live? We are in western Massachusettts, and much of what we see on a regular basis is featured in your post. Lily of the Valley is quite prevalent too. Maybe we are neighbors?

  2. Hi Doreen,

    Thanks for visiting my blog. These photos were taken in Clinton Corners, NY, which is in Duchess County. It's definitely a "soil thing" with how well they grow, and the fact that mountainous regions are close by.
