I'm also very excited about the two Liberty Apple trees that although young yet are loaded with flowers this year! I had some wonderful birds arrive this weekend, including a ruby-throated hummingbird (on Mother's Day) and my rare Clay-colored sparrow out in the "back 40"! I am hoping to do a post on the birds on my property as soon as I get time to go get photos.

I'm still very hard at work in my new gardens. I've got about 52 plants arriving on Wednesday. A few of the plants I ordered were canceled due to problems with the supplies but that is to be expected every now and then. This will just leave me with time to rethink and pick some bulbs to bring early color to my beds in the spring! This little Fern Peony, one of three, is somewhat of a surprise in one of my older beds. I'm not really sure where it came from and this is the first year they have blossomed! I have two crab apple trees that are a highlight of my yard.
