Welcome to GregFreeman.garden, the online home to Greg Freeman's Garden Chronicle

More than merely offering a chronicle of my gardening experiences, this site celebrates lush beds of fragrant flowers, heirloom vegetable preservation, farm to table dining, the slow food movement, lazy summer afternoons resting beneath shade trees, and choruses of birds singing, bees buzzing and breezes wafting.  In addition to the plants growing in my own garden, I will periodically explore garden-related subjects from around the world, ranging from rare trees and innovative hybridists to
en plein air paintings and artful filmography depicting lovely flowers and stunning landscapes. 

So journey with me!  Spade and trowel are optional, of course, but I hope something discovered here will compel you to see gardening through a new lens, one that opens up a world of infinite possibilities and years of gardening pleasure.

Savoring the wisteria and trying to comfort my whiny canine companion!  The beautiful, fragrant blooms highlighting this video are Wisteria frutescens 'Amethyst Falls', now widely distributed commercially throughout the world.  This plant, easy to maintain and less aggressive than its Asian cousin, was introduced by my neighbors at Head-Lee Nursery/Head Ornamentals.
