Between now and our last blog, Yoshio and I went to San Ramon (Jesse, Lisa, and Owen’s house), Mendocino, and Napa California. I ordered plants from Equinox Valley Nursery in Manchester for the new gardens, plants arrived at Ormsby Hill, and plants went in the prepared beds. While we are still awaiting more plants, and have several full days of planting left, my dream garden is a reality.
Special, special thanks to Equinox Valley Nursery (www.equinoxvalleynursery.com), located just south of the inn, for their amazing support in providing all the plants for this garden within our budget. They have very big hearts! Also, Jim Colvin, a local lawn care business owner, shared my vision for this field, starting with the labyrinth. He is an expert at working the land and we are happy he is part of the Ormsby Hill family. Yoshio, Christine, Amanda, and Nicole have spent hours planting. I am so grateful for everyone’s help.
