Tending the gardens at Connecticut Country House, that’s what we do. And I guess you could call it a labor of love. On one hand, that labor of love comes from our commitment to be the best caretakers we can be of our 1767 home. And on the other hand, we surely love working the land and doing that work together.
Years ago when I found this early reverse-painted glass topped snuff box, it reminded me of me and Murph in the garden (with the exception of the nineteenth century outfits!); me pointing to the spot that needs to be dug and having plants at the ready, while Murph with shovel in hand is ready to dig.
Some things never change. And that’s a good thing!
Happy gardening! Love, Nora
