Another one of Mother Earth’s gems ! When I smell lilacs I often feel my dear sweet Grandma Leona is with me ! It was one of her most favorite flowering plants . #lilac #syringavulgaris #grandma #💜#floweringplants #thesmell #foreverinmyheart #myfavoritethings #summerisalmosthere #frommygarden #fromhome #ack #ackgardens #nantucket #nantucketgardens #purpleflowers

Waking up to gray skies and more rain has me thinking about how incredible the weather was the last 2 days. Even though yesterday ended with clouds and sprinkles, it was still nice.
I’ve spent the last 2 days planting beautiful pots & boxes. Getting my hands dirty and reconnecting with the earth always puts a smile on my face!
I can’t wait to finish this project! 🌸

Our little attempt at creating a woodland Dell with an Endless Stream that we built years ago is full of emerging goodies today. The deer mostly leave our chosen plant material in this unfenced area alone, though they did original ravage a few of the many Japanese Maples that we planted, but with time and growth, we no longer cage the Acer. Our dog isn’t much of a deer deterrent at nearly 15, but still very active. #nantucketgardens #ackgardens #heathlandgarden #shawkemohills #bordercollie #primula #acer #narcissus #dodecahedron #podophyllum #lilyofvalley #Uvularia #pulmonaria #endlessstream #streamreflection #hosta #ferns

The garden fairy came the other day , she cleaned out the NGF flower beds and planted new flowers to be used for The Mommy and Me Tea Party floral crowns and the children’s Fairy Garden and Floral crown workshop. #plantingseeds #gettingyourhandsdirty #plantingflowers #playingwithearth #floralcrown #cosmos #zinnia #grownwithlove #mothernature #nasturtiums #motherearth #pleasegrow #fromourgarden #waterandsun #headhearthands #fairygarden #diyfairygarden #diyfloralcrown #ackgardens #nantucketgardens #ackkids #ack #nantucket #ackgardenfest

I was so delighted this morning at actually seeing the sun out after countless damp and cold days on Nantucket. I have been dealing with the remnants of pneumonia, so a dry day was most welcome. While strolling about the garden it was sad to see the last of the Tulips and Narcissus, though we still have a few holdouts. A late batch of Hyacinth is a treat, but having Peonies is the new high point along with a bevy of other new plants that are starting to bloom. I included a shot of a desiccated tulip in a forgotten flower arrangement as I loved its last moment as much as its first. #nantucketgardens #ackgardens #heathlandgarden #shawkemohills #peoniasuffruticosa #bistorta #geranium #iris #allium #primula #prunusmaritima #magnolia #acer #narcissus #tulipa #hyacinthus #potentilla #iberis #pulmonaria #desicatedflowers

Gray and damp again today on Nantucket, but our Greenhouse is still producing new treats. Our Centaurea gymnocarpa has flowered for the first time. I think in the past years that I must have always cut it back at the wrong time. Epiphyllums are still blooming away. #nantucketgardens #ackgardens #passivesolargreenhouse #heathlandgarden #centaureagymnocarpa #epiphyllum

Nantucket Harbor from our house was pretty in pink last evening. The ghostly white tree is a Beach Plum or Prunus maritima. It has started to flower, but now we need enough warmth to bring out the bees or we will not be able to make Beach Plum Jelly. #nantucketgardens #ackgardens #heathlandgarden #nantucketharbor #polpis #shawkemohills #beachplum #prunusmaritima #nantucketsunset #beachplumjelly

These Mount Hood daffies are still killing it! #moontreegardens #nantucketgardens #daffodils #mounthooddaffodil

Laying out a 3 season shade garden that will be finished off with ground covers for natural mulch. It will be a very low maintenance garden! Just like nature. Also, our favorite truck. Don’t tell the others! #naturallandscape #dutradesigns #nantucketgardens #design #nativeplants #nantucket #path #green #seasonal #shadegarden #regenerativelandscaping
