Great Plans For The Boxwood Room
Posted by F&S
There's an area at the farm behind the Summer House that has been a real work in progress. A few years ago, Martha had the area enclosed with a wall of tall boxwood shrubs and she has plans for a formal garden. She calls it the 'Boxwood Room.' The other day, more shrubs were delivered and of course, we had to go investigate.
1 Francesca, why do you suppose there is burlap covering this stone walkway?
2 Sharkey, there's also a big blue tarp. I suppose it has something to do with the delivery of new boxwood shrubs. I guess the workmen are covering the walks to keep them clean. That's smart, especially since Martha's home.
3 Sharkey, that tall man is George Bridge who finds really nice mature trees and shrubs. He's supplied Martha with many great specimens.
4 This garden behind the Summer House is a work in progress.
5 This structure is a faux bois gazebo that Martha found at a tag sale years ago. She finally has a place for it.
6 Sharkey, wouldn't it be great if someone got married here some day?
7 Franny, you can be sure it won't be me!
8 Well, Sharkey, what about Martha?
9 I suppose we'll have to wait for the garden to be finished before making any plans like that!
