|Nan's garden in 2011|
You'll see a variety of fruit trees, berries, shrubs and herbs, in addition to perennial and annual vegetables and herbs, mixed into a wonderfully vibrant urban garden. The roses were beautiful when I dropped by recently. Check out Nan's Broad St. plant list for more information, as well as for background on her bark house.
The bark house is fascinating, built as Nan and her husband Saul's new home in Asheville in 2008. This article, recently published in Appalachian Voices describes its virtues and history.
P.S. If you're interested in learning more about Asheville's storied architecture and built environment, Nan's book, Asheville: A History, is a great reference.
