Do you have a name for your garden or names for your individual gardens - names that conjures up images of beauty, creativity, or even humor? New England is home to many wonderful gardens with intriguing names, like Rosecliff or Blithewold or Merryspring to name a few. These names conjure up images of what the garden might look like. I consider myself a creative type; however my garden names are much more functional.
Yellow Twig Garden
Most of my gardens are connected and flow through the yard like a brook flows through the woods. However I have 16 different garden names to identify different areas in the garden. These names are usually very practical and simply help me to identify where my plants live. Oh, once in the while a garden name may be inspired by some interesting element in the garden. However, more often the names are the result of a dominant plant, color or location in the yard, East Side, Katsura Garden, or Bird House.
