Today we’re visiting Deborah McQuiston’s garden and sharing some photos she took in the beginning of October.

I live in northeastern Pennsylvania, in the Pocono Mountains, Zone 5b.

Our house was built in 2012, so I started with nothing: half an acre, nothing in the middle, surrounded by more than 200 deciduous trees. Challenges are the ever present deer, our short growing season in Zone 5, and gardening on a slope in the rear of the house.

It’s still a work in progress: hardscaping is done by landscaping professionals, but all 400+ perennials and shrubs have been planted by this 60-something!
