"Welcome to Brookside Gardens"
Muriel and I moved back to this place, her family home, in 1974 after her mother had passed away. Her parents had built it in 1927, and it looks very different today than it did
in 1974. Then the back garden area was mostly deciduous trees and a lot of pachysandra. The brook, of course, has always bordered us on the eastern flank. Over the years we transformed it into the daylily gardens of today by removing many trees and ground covers. We both retired from elementary school teaching in the early 90's and we can devote quite a bit of time to our hobbies. Our cats Agnes and Margo also
play a large part in our lives. We are fairly active bird watchers and over the years planted companion plants and shrubs to create a National Wildlife Federation Wildlife Habitat. Each year, from fall to spring a large number of Mallards occupy our brook and often waddle into our garden.
