Photographs taken June 10th, 2010
Our beautiful new road signs hand painted by Ray Degischer
Things are starting to get pretty busy around here. We seem to be a week behind on most things, including posting these photos, they were taken May 28th.
This post is from 5/13/10
It has been a really amazing year for our roses so far. We have been picking baskets and baskets of them most mornings. It has been a crazy spring weather wise. One day 80 some degrees and the next it's cold and raining. The wind has been a force to be reckoned with as well. The garden hasn't seemed to mind, everything is growing beautifully. The late rains did contribute to the dahlias getting in the ground much later than we would have liked, but we expect them to be blooming soon.
This has been one weird week! It's hot, it's cold, it's wet, it's dry. You never know what you are going to get from one minute to the next. The garden hasn't seemed to mind. The roses are amazing, everything is green and lush. It's making for some really lovely floral arrangements, if we don't say so ourselves.
As you can see many of the roses are in bud. Hopefully they will be in full bloom for the open house. That first big bloom is one of the most magical times in the garden. We encourage everyone to bring cameras and easels out to capture the moment. We'll keep you posted.
The garden has been very busy this week. Almost everything has leafed out. There are a couple of rose bushes blooming. The lilacs were blooming for Easter arrangements. The Snow Ball viburnum has beautiful green buds. It has been a weird day, it rained all morning, now at 5:00pm the sun is coming out.
