This blog is now devoted to gardening with native plants with a focus on those species native to the east coast of the United States. With an MS in Agricultural Science from the University of Delaware and my love of native plants, I hope to help folks see the beauty and necessity of using native plants in your garden instead of exotic plants. Did you know that our native song birds and native insects are disappearing as our local environments continue to change?
December Update at Winterberry Farm Primitives tonight at 5pm!
The December Update at Winterberry Farm Primitives (http://www.picturetrail.com/winterberryfarm) starts tonight as 5pm! The picture on the left shows one of four great old putz fences I found in my travels - all of the fence sets have their own gate that still swings freely on its 'hinges'! It's rare to find a putz fence set with its original gate AND for the set to be in such good shape AND I have four of them in the update! Everything inside the fence, except for the wonderful old boy with sled ornament, is also for sale this evening! I hope all of you got a chance to take a sneak peek last night at what will be in the December Update when it 'officially' opens this evening. I am working hard to get all of the information written on the items for sale so everything will be ready for tonight! To wind down and relax for a minute, I was going to take a look at the blogs I am following, but it looks like Blogger is having another problem because now it looks like I am not following any blogs at all! Oh well! I will just have to finish this posting and snuggle up in front of the fire instead! Hope y'all get a chance to view the update tonight! I'll be blogging again soon!

Things have changed quite a bit in the last two years since I last posted a blog here at Winterberry Farm Primitives. My oldest grandson is now in college and my daughter is finishing her RN in her new home up in New York City. I have had four fantastic years as an antiques dealer and have met some wonderful people. Now it is time to get back to blogging about what I love - antiques and native plants! My blogs on antiques will be companions to my monthly shop updates and my gardening blogs will try to follow the seasons, so here we go! I am a wife to a great hubby, mother of two wonderful people (both of which served their country - AF & Army) & grandmother of three great teenagers. I am also a plant scientist with a masters in science. I developed a vegetative propagation method for Spigelia marilandica as my undergraduate project & worked with three species of trillium, for my masters thesis. That said - after several years in the ag/biotech field, I find myself drawn back to my first love of antiques & gardening.
