Yes, be careful! After driving to work for 2 days in a row the third day was spent at home, but not in the gardens but in bed 😦 So I guess staying home isn’t always what we wish for. So be careful but read on…
How can I leave? As I stand out on the deck on a warm June morning drinking my first cup of coffee I see one more thing that makes me smile.
Today as I looked into the variegated Willow a Ruby throated Hummingbird was sitting on a branch. As quickly as it caught my eye it darted away.
Looking toward the lower gardens a rabbit hopped out of the underbrush and began eating the Lamium.
Behind it a chipmunk ran across a log. Wood thrushes, catbirds, swamp sparrows and robins were feeding their young. Try as I might I could not find an excuse to stay home especially having just taken a week off! So I pulled myself together and began to drive to work. It was an opportune time to turn onto Tanglewood because in front of me a mother deer and her fawn crossed the road. The baby was so young it had a difficult time scrambling up the embankment. If only I had a camera in hand. I did last night! Here is how the garden grows. Enjoy . . .
Aquilegia canadensis – Thomas Mann Randolph, Jefferson’s son-in-law, observed this perennial wildflower blooming on April 30, 1791.
A rescue from down the road. A piece was literally growing on the road o I broke it off brought it home and gave it a place to multiply!
