In Print – Better Homes and Gardens – Path Finders

Madonna Phillips the garden she shares with hubby Greg Hallam

Years from now, when I look back on my second career as garden coach, garden writer, and field editor of Better Homes and Gardens and their Special Interest Media such as Country Gardens and Nature’s Garden, as well as other garden magazines such as Fine Gardening and Carolina Gardener, producing stories for publication will be in the forefront.  And no doubt, this is due to working with some very talented people.  For this feature, I had the honor of working with editor Eric Liskey, graphic artist Scott Johnson, and photographer Kritsada.  Their professionalism mixed with their pleasant (and entertaining) personalities made a memory I’ll never forget.

In print is the March 2009 issue of BHG,  Path Finders, the garden of Madonna Phillips and Greg Hallam, in Historic Oakwood, Raleigh, North Carolina.

What you don’t see in this photo, is after finishing the photo shoot, just as Greg comes home from work,  we all gather on the front porch, southern style, and sit a spell.  Madonna goes to the fridge and pulls out whatever is available, while we make plans for dinner.  Later with a glass of wine, nuts, olives, crackers, and cheese, we bask in the comfort of Madonna and Greg’s home, their hospitality, and of course the sight of the lovely garden we are all now so familiar with.
