Pamela Hubbard had spoken to our club about creating an English Garden in the Poconos.  From her blog, Pam's English Cottage Garden, "I long for my Grandmother's garden in England that I remember as a child.  I am trying to create something similar in the Pocono Mountains.  My husband has lived in this house, Astolat Farm, all of his life.  There are 24+ acres and 8- of them are farmed.  The house (circa 1850) is on approximately three acres that are gardens, potential gardens, and pastures for my miniature horse and pigmy goat.  The rest is wooded".  Pamela is a garden writer and photographer contributing to the Pocono Record.  Visit her blog at
