Winterberry Farm Primitives

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?
For those who come to this page to see my 'Winterberry Farm Primitives' blog can now be found at where I will post new additions to my online antiques shop at and discuss various subjects about primitive antiques.

Crazy dog in the snow!

So, crazy Maya was out yesterday playing in the snow with my grandsons! They would throw snowballs for her and she would jump into snow drifts as high as 48" to get the 'ball'. She could smell their scent on the snow and would bring back the 'ball' if it was still in one piece! She had the best time out there and didn't want to come in, but when she did, she spent the rest of the afternoon in front of the fire!
Maya was just picked up a couple of minutes ago (along with our snow shovel!) by my daughter so Maya could go and play at her house for the afternoon! Crazy Dog!

    WOWSA, that's a lotta snow! Thanks for visiting and the fave on Blotanical.
    Pleased to connect,

  2. I just discovered your blog through a comment on another blog (which I cant find now - does anyone else do that?) My daughter is also a grad student at UD - your photos are beautiful, and I just love your fireplace! It "almost" makes me want to live in a place that snows!

  3. I can't even imagine what it must be like to have so much snow! It is beautiful!

  4. Hi Susan! Your grandson and your dog look like they are having a blast! It turns out we did not get much snow at all. Thank you for the fave at blotanical... that is where I first saw your blog. The snow looks beautiful!
