Welcome to the Enclosed Garden of Susan Ernst. Literal as well as figurative, this blog explores the physical gardens which I cultivate, the spiritual garden within, and the intellectual garden of horticultural knowledge gathered through decades of study, observation and practice. Come and sit with me for a while. Let us together marvel at the delicate, intricate beauty of a flower.
I began this project last month, as part of an online group. On the 5th day of the month I will post a photo of the same four locations to document the seasonal changes.
Birdbath in Perennial Border

New Garden outside Wisteria Studio

The Hortus Conclusus
Above: towards the left, a floating row cover protects lettuce and broccoli plants from frost. To the right of it are tulips. Other greens (close to the fence) are garlic and woad plants. That is a cold frame on the right.
