Jun 06, 2006 — Part of the fun of gardening in the North Country can be creating your own personal paradise. That's what makes each garden unique -- from a quaint cottage garden to a working farm with acres of vegetation. But what does it take to turn a gardener into an artist and a garden into a work of art? Open Studio co-hosts Beth Robinson and Hilary Oak recently joined gardener Becky Harblin at her West Potsdam farm in St. Lawrence County. It was just after a thunderstorm rumbled through and dropped buckets of rain. Becky's backyard and garden plots are filled with herbs, perennials, wildflowers and surrounded by sturdy stone walls. It's a place where everything comes together -- nature and art. Scattered among the garden "rooms" are her handmade sculptures.
