Up-Island and down this past winter there were houses on stilts. Most notable, perhaps, was the beginning of work restoring the Old Parsonage in West Tisbury. That home dates back to 1668 and is generally considered to be the second oldest residence on the Island, which makes it one of the oldest structures in the country. Now in the middle of its fourth century of existence, for a moment a few years back it seemed as if the house might not survive into its fifth, when a preliminary application to tear it down was filed with the West Tisbury Historic District Commission.

Yes, the phrase “Home & Garden” evokes visions of sprawling acres, elaborate man caves, and limited-edition artisanal wallpaper, but it has finally come time to shed light away from the Goliaths and onto the Davids of the Home & Garden game.

It is a singular variety of good fortune to dwell in one place that you love for many years. To watch the mail-order twigs you and your best friend planted grow into mature creatures. For that is what plants are – creatures – when you live with them for ten or twenty years. Or more. If you don’t believe it, you have not cohabited with a wisteria.
