Did your house have a victory garden, a flower garden, a greenhouse? Or was it in raised beds or all in various pots? What did the Island gardens look like ‘back in the day’?
Pierce Rafferty and I are trying to collect pictures of old Fishers Island gardens, with the thought of putting together a book someday if we can find enough. We are interested in photos of all kinds of gardens – they don’t have to be large and fancy. People might have some photos tucked away in scrapbooks or desk drawers – who knows – but we thought it would be fun to collect what might be out there before the photos fade.
Please contact Pierce at firstname.lastname@example.org if you uncover some island garden images.
Thanks so much,
Mélie & Pierce
