My wife and I own a small farm in central New Hampshire. Our horticultural interests are varied, and we often start collections of various species or varieties of plants. Some of our favorites are ornamental grasses, hemerocallis, SEMPERVIVUMS and other cold hardy succulents, monardas, hostas, ivys, tulips, bamboos, clematis, dicentra, yuccas and groundcovers to name a few. We concentrate on perennials and cold hardy bulbs, allowing the rare annual in the garden. We do keep house plants, but are rapidly running out of indoor space. We do not do much vegetable gardening yet, concentrating for now on landscaping the property. We are more serious than the average homeowner about identifying and collecting plants, but perhaps less so than some who would frequent sites such as this. In addition to plants we breed birds such as ornamental pheasants and peafowl, and we exhibit heirloom breeds of poultry and waterfowl at shows throughout the northeast.
