Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
Recorded in: Machias (Me.), United States, Maine, March, 1956.
General:
CDR copy Tapes FW-ASCH-7RR-0743, -0744 were recorded on Machias Seal Island, Maine, prior to March 19, 1956. They include sounds of puffins, terns and fog horns and were recorded by Floyd J. Owen of Stratford, Connecticut . A letter from Mr. Owen dated 3/19/56, in the -0744 tape box, addressed to Folkways, states that he was glad to hear that the recording would be released soon; the letter then discusses the subject of photos for the LP cover and suggests that the record be advertised in the National Audubon Magazine. However, I can find no evidence that any Folkways recording ever utilized any material from these tapes. A copy of the letter is in the new tape box. The back of the tape box for -0743 has detailed information about the different tracks; a copy is in the CD jewel case and new tape box. The back of the tape box for -0744 states that the tape was an excerpt from an hour-long recording; -0744 lasts only for eight minutes.

Place:
Hieronimus Garden (Arch Cape, Oregon)
United States of America -- Oregon -- Clatsop County -- Arch Cape
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and abbreviated garden plan, detailed plans for the entire garden and the garden railroad, a plant list, and a photocopy of an article about the garden.
General:
This small garden near the sea has been under development since 1990. The main garden is in the informal Pacific Northwest style, using native plants combined with non-natives. The plants include those known to do well near the sea and experiments with others of unknown salt tolerance. The front of the house has a foundation planting of various Rhododendron yakushimanum hybrids, and there is a large collection of hydrangeas, both species and hybrids, many of which were propagated by the owner. A moon-gated arbor, copied from one in an old Chinese garden, leads to the enclosed portion of the garden and the prime attraction: the garden railroad. It is a miniature landscape featuring rocky cliffs and ravines, roads, bridges, dry-laid and mortared rock retaining walls, alpine plants, and dwarf conifers as a setting for scale model (1:24) buildings and a G scale train, which is battery operated and radio controlled. In addition to a steady stream of individuals, the garden has been visited by the Rock Garden Society, the American Conifer Society, numerous garden clubs, and landscaping and gardening classes. The garden is open to visitors by appointment.
Persons associated with the garden include: Robert Astbury (former owner, mid-1800s); J. M. Shank (former owner, 1932-1945); Kent Price (former owner, 1945-?); and Eleanor Stith (former owner, ca. 1970).

General:
Under development since 1976, this garden's gradual construction and evolution have resulted in a collection of borders and rock gardens informally planned, constructed, and changed gradually over the subsequent years. This process continues with the addition of crevice gardens to replace a portion of the existing rock gardens. Primarily a collectors' garden rather than a designed landscape, the garden focuses on rock gardening and alpine plants; between 1,500 and 2,000 species are represented. Salt tolerance, especially of small shrubs, is a primary issue, although there are microclimates even on this small piece of land. Rainfall is also high, averaging 110 inches per year, with 150 inches being experienced in two recent years. Some of the rock gardens with sensitive alpines are covered in the winter, while winter gales can reach 60 to 70 miles per hour. Some of the plants have been purchased from nurseries, but the majority have been grown from seed or cuttings acquired from friends or in the wild. Wild-collected seed and the resulting plants in the alpine gardens are the most valued garden material. These collections of seed have been taken on trips in Europe, Asia, South Africa, and North America, although the main concentration has been on South America, especially in the Andes of Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina. In addition to the border and rock gardens there are troughs, containers, and frames.
Persons associated with the garden include: George Hurd (former owner, ca. 1942-1973).
