Last fall after the harvest season of their farming operation and a major renovation of the farmhouse was over, and our good friends Steve and Jewel took on a "small" landscaping project. Troutbirder, who has created some woodland gardens on his own property, was asked for a little advice. He volunteered that hosta was particularly effective in the shade. Of course, Jewell said wildflowers would be especially attractive in their native setting. Some improvement would be needed along the ditches. And a large fire pit for barbequing was essential in the picnic area. Steve watched with a somewhat bemused expression. At that point, the name Central Park West was suggested for the whole project. Mild weather in late fall helped and a good start was made. Now we’re all looking forward to spring to see the first results.
