The gardens change each week, some weeks offer more to see than others, but there’s always something going on. This morning, the Allegheny Spurge is blooming. Many don’t realize that this beautiful native is also fragrant. It will slowly waft upwards, one must linger to catch the scent. It’s not for those in a hurry!
Some of the trillium in our garden beds are poking up their heads, and the blood-root in container is blooming away — this plant has no fear of cold temperatures.
Our gardens are in need of a little tidying up — we hear that the insects kind of prefer it that way, anyway. So don’t expect ‘Longwood Perfection’ when you come visit. You’ll see real native gardens, in real life, with lots of real life happening in them. Pollinators, beneficials, blooms, birds — it all happens over the course of the season.
