Thought I'd show a few hellebore photos from the open house at Pine Knot Farm.
Today Meg and I cleaned the house in the morning and worked in the gardens in the afternoon. I cleaned up the large perennial bed next to the deck and hand pulled 15 gallons of acorns that had 6 inch roots. Then raked up the side yard path and back yard. Meg cleaned out the veggy gardens and planted 3 small patches of Sugar Snap Peas.
Today's Wildlife report: I found a Spring Peeper, Meg dug up a Bull Frog too cold to jump away. Heard Upland Chorus Frogs, saw Eastern Red Newts and Eastern Painted Turtles in the pond. Meg saw the first yard butterfly while I was making lunch :( it was an anglewing meaning either a Question Mark or Eastern Comma..
