International Garden of the Week: Cheryl and Phil


The North Garden–a mix of conifers, trees, shrubs, daylilies and other perennials.


Charlotte Chamitoff proudly awards her International Garden of the Week to the gorgeous Terrace Hill Farm tended by our very own Cheryl Fox and Phil Douville of Bloomfield, CT! How exciting! Check out the lovely story of how their landscape took shape over the years, and take a virtual stroll through Cheryl and Phil’s garden here. You can’t ask for better on a frosty January morning. 🙂


In other news, the theme for the 2017 CONNECTICUT FLOWER AND GARDEN SHOW has been announced as Woodland Enchantment. If any of you CT gardeners have some woodsy photos–maybe a border set with a wooded area as a backdrop, a bed with a tree or two providing dappled light in which you have daylilies shining,  or perhaps a photo capturing your flowers in full sun, but taken while looking out from a forest path–please send your photos to myself or Rebecca. Think leafy canopies and half-visualized garden rooms, cozy nooks with seating and a clump of daylilies brightening the space, speckled sunlight highlighting a patch of daylily bloom. We’re open to interpretation and want to see what you’ve got! We’d very much appreciate your help, and your garden could get a featured spot on our CDS table on February 23-26!


Lastly, don’t forget our January meeting is coming up! Soup’s on at noon on Saturday, January 21st at the Avon Senior Center with guest speaker Claudia Conway taking the stage at 1 pm. Be there, or be left out in the cold!
