The way into the woods . . .
The maples are hazed with red blooms . . .
I'll be back with gloves to pick nettles for nettle soup . . .
Out standing in my field . . .
Mystery trees a-bloom -- haws, maybe?
Since it seems deer don't eat hellebores, I'm going to begin transplanting some to other places.
The blue Lutyens bench John made . . .
Flowering quince . . . another something deer don't seem to bother. And it sends up lots of volunteers. More transplanting in my future . . .
On to the pond . . .
Pear bloom . . .
The gang, enjoying the sun . . .
Pear buds -- I love those pink edges . . .
And another blue bench . . .
Oriental magnolia bud . . .
Red leaf peach in bloom . . .
Oriental magnolia in bloom . . .
Reflections . . .
"That time of year thou mayst behold in me . . ."
My escort leading the way . . .
I took 179 pictures . . . you'll likely see more in the coming days.
