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.

The March Towards The Flower Show Continues!

So, our march towards the Flower Show continues! In this first picture, the siding is on and the 'first' front door is on. The next step is to paint the siding and the first of several coats is put on the house.As we continue to work on the house, a roof will be added and shingles will be individually placed on the roof. The shingles will then be stained and then made to look old with the addition of some small areas of mossy stains and some shingles that are darker than the others. Tomorrow, I will start on the shingles and then work on the interior of the house!
Stay tuned!
