I am in Zone 5 (6) northern Connecticut. I began planting our empty half acre lot in 2005, although most of the plants and gardens were installed starting in 2007.  I also tend another half acre of common land abutting our lot, where I am reforesting a hillside that was bulldozed in 2004, and managing a weedy unmowed meadow.

While you are looking for a specific plant on the sidebar, here are some totally random shots of my garden. Enjoy.
