 We love growing large pumpkins at The Song Garden.  The Wizard (2010) and The Skull (2011) were both created by the same artist from our pumpkins!   Our favorite seeds for pumpkins are Atlantic Giants.  Growing pumpkins has become a really fun hobby for us.  This year we named our pumpkins because we became so attached to them...!  Our biggest pumpkins are named Boris and Bruno.  They were too heavy to bring to this particular pumpkin contest at work.  They are gracing the rock garden in front of the Tea House.   

Winter Wonderland on Halloween Weekend!

Taken yesterday morning, October 29th.  The historic Halloween weekend snowstorm, 2011.  Note the deer fencing surrounding the garden on the left.  
I feel good looking at this photo knowing that we got the 150 new Oriental and Asiatic Lily bulbs into the ground just in time.  Whew!

October 29th surprise snowstorm! This is how the place looked in the night time, it was covered in a beautiful white blanket of fresh snow. Amazing weather event!
