the Folly at Western Hills
 
The Folly is an apt name for the fanciful
gazebo-like structure at the entrance.
Our effort so far has been
to trim the overgrown vegetation, although
it does need a coat of wood preservative.

the restored pond at Western Hills
 
The pond lives!
We eliminated the parrot feather,
then the duckweed,
and then the dreaded azolla.
Now the water lilies (and pickerel) are happier,
as well as the pair of turtles, fish, frogs, ducks,
and an occasional heron.

Western Hills Garden, formerly the Western Hills Rare Plant Nursery, achieved its three-year anniversary in July 2013 under the new owners, Christine and Tim Szybalski. We have completed a significant milestone in the restoration of the garden and are pleased that we are open for tours and events on a limited basis.
