It’s not a well kept secret that I’m not exactly a winter lover and for those who know me well it would be of no surprise that I love garden tours. So within the last two weeks I took advantage of the opportunity to attend a presentation by designer Charlotte Moss entitled “25 Years of Creating a Garden and Influences Along the Way.” I must say it was a nice winter diversion that I very much enjoyed just three days prior to the first day of spring’s snow. The designer will be releasing her latest book “Garden Inspirations” next month so attendees got a sneak preview of numerous photos she shared of her East Hampton garden 25 year labor of love.
For those who support the local high school booster clubs who have already placed their orders for mulch, now is also the time to start making plans for the garden renovations and clean up that will soon be in the works before mulch deliveries take place. Below are some inspirational images of Charlotte Moss’s garden with many ideas that can also be achieved on a smaller scale.
The author and designer’s latest gardening book is due to be released on April 14th, 2015.
Sculpted hedges give structure to the kitchen garden which also features espaliered apple trees.

China and collected objects line the shelves in the flower room.
I am so looking forward to spring so hopefully all the snow and frigid cold weather is finally behind us. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
