A Teddy Tour

Teddy is ready to check out the lower gardens.

As soon as I open the gate, she checks out every square inch.

Soon the creek will be flowing and the waterfalls will fill the ponds.

All of the trees are leafing out.

Teddy is like a large puff ball that collects all the blossoms which are falling from the trees.  She is always covered with them.

She is standing by the poppies I just planted.

I love the way the hostas unfurl.

This is a job waiting to be done.  It will take several days to clean up this area.

The weeping beech is opening.

My blackberry patch which I am just about to add to.

The fothergilla are blooming.

I should have trimmed these katsuras before they opened.

My Swiss chard is spreading and out of control.

The witch weathervane.


And a closeup of the new bat weathervane.

My espaliered apple is beginning to bloom.


Grapes
I still have lots to do!
