Wilderness backyard





We have a wilderness in our backgarden. A part on the edge of our land where nothing has been done for years. We bought the House in the Woods almost 6 years ago, and didn't think much of it then since so much of the land was a wilderness. But with the garden coming more to life every year, it was now very visual from the kitchen window that something had to be done with the wilderness. And Terje has gone to work, digging, raking, moving stones and bushes. He has left a spot with wood anemones for me. They are among my favorite wild spring flowers and will be in bloom in just a few days now.

ooh, I'd have wooden statues and large boulders and wind chimes and lots of clumps of woodland flowers and a wooden bench...
and nesting boxes...
I'd make this a place for reflection and communing with nature

What a lovely place to plant native plants - ferns, Christmas roses, Hostas, etc. since we have a few piles similar to the ones Terje made in your garden, we know how much work he has done to make them! Way to go, Terje!
