about the Red House

The Red House was built in 2009.   It was built with color and character, but alas, no garden, unless you count a few shrubs and precisely one shade tree per city code thrown in by the building company.  This is the mission:  to add lushness and color throughout the yards of the Red House.  And hopefully not break the bank doing so...



and UPDATE:

We hadn't expected to leave our Red House, but a change in job and the opportunity to live near family led us to move to the Boston area in 2013.   We now live in zone 6a in our new not-so-red house, and I am learning all about New England gardening.


When I'm not digging rocks out of my new garden, you can find me puttering around in my new, little red greenhouse that helps extend the gardening season just a little bit up here.


As always, happy gardening!
