Andy Milford — he’s the man behind the camera when I shoot my “Delicious Living” videos — brought his drone to Clover Hill a couple of weeks ago. Would you like to see what crows see when they soar above this snow-cloaked property? Spread your wings and fly with me:
Here’s the front of the house with a view of the fence and boxwood garden. We’re flying close to the ground now.
Up, up, and away! Here, you can see the house and its many rooftops. Looking upward, you can see the yew-framed boxwood garden. Looking down, you can view the four small beds in the herb garden. At the lower left, behind a screen of tall arborvitae, and surrounded by a hedge of hemlock, is the swimming pool.
A close-up view of the boxwood garden. I grew almost all of these shrubs from simple cuttings (click here for details.)
Here’s another long view. That’s my snow-covered car in the driveway. Behind the pool garden (marked by a row of arborvitae) is the Woodland Garden, which overlooks a Hudson River tributary. There’s nothing to see in the woodland just now, as the ferns and bulbs there are dormant still.
I hope you enjoyed this little fly-over. In the comments field below, let me know what’s happening at your own house and garden. Has spring made its appearance where you are? Here, we seem perpetually stuck in winter!
