Emily's have i New York

 

Today's photos are from Emily Schmidt, who says, "My gardens here at Schmidt Family Farm in Charlton, New York, were started in 1951 by my husband's grandparents, Clifford and Gertrude Schmidt. My husband, Matt, and I had the opportunity to continue the family farm here beginning in 2000. Since Gertrude and Clifford were in their 80s at that time, many of the gardens needed some restoring and attention. But the foundation was there and I was able to keep many of the original plants going. Today I still cherish the oriental poppies, peonies, bearded irises, some roses, daylilies, hostas, and more that are now what I consider family heirlooms. Matt and I were fortunate to have our garden wedding here in 2003.  Matt's sister Rachel and her husband were married here in 2005 in the gardens. Now, Marshall and Cadee, our two children, are growing up immersed in the gardens and tradition. (Of course they especially like to pick the flowers!) I sell my "Extra Petals" on a roadside wagon in the spring, which has proven to be a fantastic way to keep me on task for divisions, which in turn keeps the plants happy."

We're in Emily's Charlton, New York, garden again today, learning a bit more about Emily and catching a few more glimpses of her gardens. She says, "I have a bachelor's in Agricultural Business from SUNY Cobleskill.  I am currently the president and a 10 year member of the Charlton Garden Club,  a small group of women from our historic rural town who share a love of all things gardens.  I enjoy learning as much as possible about perennials, trying new plant combinations, and I have a growing love for shade gardening.  Some of my favorite plants in my gardens include variegated solomon's seal, Aruncus, Japanese painted ferns, Oriental Lily 'Casa Blanca', Hosta 'Sagae', Geranium 'Rozanne', and Persicaria 'Firetail'.  I enjoy a visual depth in my gardens, similar to a Walt Disney animation, where you see the focus but there is always more in the background.   I want my gardens to take me somewhere visually, to feel like they don't end.  That is very important to me as I design my gardens and photograph them - especially come January, when it is 12 degrees outside, anticipating a huge snowstorm, and I need to escape into some garden photographs!   Matt and I planted 600 black walnut trees on our farm in 2001, and are expecting 500 Balsam Fir transplants this spring to begin the process of growing Christmas trees."
