The Gardens

 I haven't begun to work on these areas.  I try not to think about how much I have to do.

 I need to thin the lily pads.  They are taking over the upper pond and it is pretty large.

 I hadn't been down here in a week and the entire Weeping Beech leafed out in that time.

 The middle pond.

 Looking up the creek from the middle pond.

 Rhubarb which is about to become sauce and pies.

 I finally planted new arborvitae to replace the one's which were destroyed by the heavy snows a couple years ago.  These are the 'thuja' Green Giants.  They should grow fast and be much more sturdy than the old ones.  These grow about 4 feet a year.
 In a few years this should be a solid wall of green again.

 Teddy's favorite drinking spot.

 She loves fish water.

Though I know she would really like to eat the fish!
