CASEY DEVINE IS A COL­LEC­TOR.

She finds some­thing ev­ery­where she goes, and those finds might end up in her home or out­side in her gar­den. “I love to re­pur­pose early Amer­i­can items much in the same way Colonists did,” Casey says. “I’ll perch an old ap­ple lad­der against a tree or place an old ta­ble out in a shady patch. Lanterns and pedestals dot my gar­den, and I use and re­use all kinds of items as planters and win­dow boxes. I like my gar­den to have lots of in­ter­est and nat­u­ral ap­peal.”

Casey cre­ates clus­tered seat­ing ar­eas all over her yard around trees and build­ings so there is al­ways a place to sit, en­joy the flow­ers and smell the fra­grance of herbs and sum­mer air. “Shade-lov­ing plants make the trees feel like they have sprung from the gar­den,” she says.
