“What is a garden without people?” someone asked recently.
What happens in a garden with sunshine, fresh air, the sounds of birds & wind & rains when no one is looking or listening?
We miss all of you who would under normal circumstances be coming to experience the garden in spring-time. Each day new flowers open. Each chance to meander brings opportunities to see & hear & experience something new – a fallen tree, an overflowing creek rippling over rocks, small hailstones on the greenhouse, self-sown seedlings popping up sometimes where least expected, all amid the chatter of birds vying for nesting sites & the sight of bees awakening from their winter hives.
As we try to adapt to new protocols, we’ve started a virtual “show & tell” series of walks in & around the garden. Just as you would if you were visiting, you’ll have a chance to learn about some of the plants here and see some in flower. You might even hear some birds & see some bees.
See you soon,
