Butterfly enjoying echinacea
So, looking at my poor little blog, I see that it will soon be a year since I last posted! I've taken loads and loads of photos with the express purpose of posting them here, but alas! It just hasn't happened. There are so many things I want to tell you about, such as my new garden beds, my hugelkulture endeavors, how I've foiled the hawks in their attempts at getting my chickens, etc., but I will just have to try and catch up gradually. In the meantime, enjoy a few recent photos from some of my strolls around Cairnwood Cottage the past few days....
Close-up of the butterfly bush (buddleia) that grows by our front yard stream
Zebra/Maiden Grass (Miscanthus sinensis "Zebrinus") in one of my newer perennial beds
"Cherry Brandy" rudbeckia in a new perennial bed
The Stamen Choir....it looks as if these stamen are a choir floating above the petals of this daylily, singing praises to the glorious new day!
Newly-purchased (and as yet un-planted) varieties of rudbeckia...hey, they were on sale and I couldn't resist. I LOVE rudbeckia!
Wild daylilies hovering over our front yard stream....they look as if they're cooling their "feet" in the water!
Sweet pea in a front yard flower bed (the variety escapes me at the moment, I have it written down somewhere!)
