24 Edgewood Avenue, Norway Bay
My cottage garden began as a former swamp with maple trees growing in pure sand. Native plants such as trillium, blue bead lily, jack-in-the-pulpit and baneberry materialized over the years. I added garden beds that grew larger every year until the entire yard is mostly shade garden with paths. All kinds of plants both native and commercially-grown find a home here now.
Gifts: Acrylic artist Betty Chamberlain’s garden flowers.
