Okay – I totally missed the summer, though I can resurrect some pictures. I think I even have late spring pics on my desktop. But here is an image from this mornings walk from the parking lot.
Here are some pictures of the vegetable garden site. They were taken this past week – March 23-27, 2009. I think Eric has pictures from last Saturday’s work day.
Friday morning in DC was foggy. Gail took some neat images of the garden that I am sharing with you.
Since the Plums are so pretty right now, I had to show you two views.
But Melisande’s Alle is equally interesting with wisps of fog blowing around.
And a last view of the fogginess….
Just a quick note to share photographs I took on March 11. There were more crocus and daffodils in the garden. And the trees are budding. I’ll post a note on just trees soon…. In the meantime…
Here is the view on my walk between the parking lot and the library.
It’s been almost a month since my last post. Since then we’ve experienced a number of frigid days, snow, wind and gray skies. But March is here, however much it is has come in like a lion, and this weekend is promising warm weather.
I went out into the garden yesterday and took some pictures that I will share with you. There are more winter aconite blooming and snowdrops (we had snow last Monday.) But there are also mounds of crocus up, and a few Chionodoxa luciliae also known as Glory of the snow and Lenten rose. The winter aconite is on the south side of the lawn as well as the Terrior Column and Mélisande’s Allée. The crocus are in the same places above, plus the Orchard, Cherry Hill, and the Lilac Circle. I saw the Glory of the snow in the Allée. The snowdrops are popping up here and there around the property especially under the Beech tree. I think things will be springing up on a regular basis from now on, so check back often.
Here are some of the pictures in no particular order.
Today the air has a softness to it that reminds me that spring will come. During a reception Melissa, Terry and Sean mentioned that there were snow drops blooming in front of the house. At lunch I went out to walk around and yes I saw snowdrops! There were also winter aconites. The yellow flowers were quite cheery. See for yourself…..
I’m planning on using this blog to keep all the DO volunteers, especially my gardening buddies, updated on our activities. Springtime will be a fun time as new things pop open so expect a good amount of activity. The rest of the year might be a little slower.
Please feel free to share your thoughts and discoveries.
