This is so exciting – I have doors, and they’re potties. 🙂
Besides handsome wooden shoe forms to differentiate them, they also have gardening forks for ‘m’en and ‘w’omen. How cool is that?
Last Friday, my friend Sue and I visited Bedrock Gardens. This isn’t a botanical garden by any means, but it is a lovely garden that draws visitors from around New Hampshire and New England.
Bedrock Gardens was purchased in 1980 by Jill Nooney and Bob Munger. It was a 37 acre dairy farm that had been abandoned for 40 years. In 1987, Jill and Bob started clearing and making personal garden beds one by one.
Today, the gardens cover about 25 acres and include a 3/4 mile trail, tea house, ponds, sculptures, and many unique plantings and water features.
As you stroll the paths through the gardens, the one overriding thought that keeps reoccurring is that this was a personal garden for many years. It takes special people with unbelievably creative minds and strong backs to envision a personal garden like this.
Today, it has ‘Friends of Bedrock Garden’ as a governing body, is classified as a nonprofit, employs John Forti as Executive Director, and is open it to the public Tuesday through Friday, 10-4, and the 1st and 3rd weekends from June through October.
If living or traveling in the area, it is a wonderful way to spend 1-2 hours of your day immersed in nature at its finest and accented with a large dose of unbelievably creative art pieces.
