The Evening Primrose are taking a beating. We put the bird feeder on a tree branch overhead. The squirrels and chipmunks routinely feed from this feeder and will then jump down onto the flowers. Naughty little animals. Tsk, tsk.
Let’s not forget the vegetables. We have them in a few spots but this is the largest. My wife put down a biodegradable landscaping paper to keep the weeds down around the plants and then filled in with mulch around the borders. I took this on Friday and it’s already changed quite a bit.
Some nature images from Heritage Gardens and Museum. It is still rather early in the season here. Cape Cod is surrounded by the still cold ocean water making the temps about 5-10 degrees cooler than inland. Still, there was much to see. Cheers!
We spent yesterday visiting Heritage Gardens and Museum in Sandwich, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. It has beautiful gardens and museums featuring Americana. As you enter, there is a lovely flume that starts just beyond the entrance (see bottom photo) and ends in a lovely grove (see top photo). More tomorrow. Cheers.
