Early spring in Belle Maison

It wouldn’t be Belle Maison without an abundance of flowers spilling out of the garden beds and planters found in every corner around the studio and residence. Our exceptionally cool and rainy spring has been great for turning everything a verdant green but we could use a little sun. I’m coming up with color schemes for this season--I like to change it up a bit each year. My perennial favorites are also eagerly awaited: peonies, irises, and the beautiful and beguiling roses!

We are switching up the four square vegetable gardens also. Herbs will be moved to their own territory in custom planters. The kitchen garden plants will not change much. Living in a farming community like Westport I’ll leave the pros to grow the trickier plants.

Come visit and share the bounty!
