Another Farm Report
When the weather man said "cool and cloudy" he forgot to mention "rain" today. But he timed it well!~ I managed to finish outdoor things and WALAT with my camera without getting too wet.
Here we are near our bridge looking at Helenium and Angelica gigas
Here's how the barn looks from here:
This side of the bridge got reworked this week but I am still on the lookout for more stones to fill in the bare spots.
Phoebe joined me to do her tricks...this in our willow tree:
Looking back toward the house you can see the smoke bush growing up to the second storey.(Bottom left window) It dies back pretty much every year but returns like mad every spring!
In one of the island beds I added a new coreopsis a few weeks ago and it seems to be doing well.
Near the hellebores, the hostas are blooming nicely and they have a nice scent too.
For Reed, DH and I have made a small garden. (No not crop circles!) Lots of grasses, the small bird bath and Hydrangea "Twist and Shout".
At last some nice roses. This is Rose Marie.
This week we also managed to finish spreading wood chips in the vegetable garden:
And the sure sign of Fall, Verbena bonariensis in bloom with the grasses.
Granny photos will have to be another time. ;)
