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.

Spring in the garden.

Spring is definitely here even though it has been cool for the last week. We had a frost advisory last night but today it is beautiful and sunny! I ran around this afternoon after I got back from the university and snapped some pictures of my front and back gardens. There are pictures of yellow trillium, shooting stars (Dodecatheon meadia), my redbud, hepaticas and on and on.... Crazy Maya is out and about getting into all of the pictures! LOL! She is so crazy! One of our next door neighbors was having some work done in their back yard the other day and as I was leaving the house; he stopped me and asked if there was any way that Maya could get out of the fence and attack him. I assured him that she was not able to jump over the 6 foot fence or tunnel under it and he was quick to let me know that he figured that if there was ever a burglar in the neighborhood that they would skip our house!
Anyway! Here are the gardens!
