Fern House by Deborah Schenck


The calendar will tell you it is spring – but it lies. It is cold, windy, and damp in this part of North Carolina and on a Sunday afternoon I would so prefer to be out in the sun gardening. So when I saw Fern House on my to read shelf, I thought it might be a nice way to vicariously spend time in a garden.
Ms. Schenck is very fortunate it own a property that lends itself to re-landscaping. The concept of creating a meadow of wildflowers is delightful, her work in the existing gardens is inspirational, and the concept of creating a pond from the foundation stones of an old building is brilliant. The incorporation of her artwork into the book was well applied, brings the warmth of the seasons to the book.
If you love gardens and need a quick read that goes well with a cup of tea and a comfy chair, you can’t miss with Fern House.
