Oh for "smellivision"..
birds keep planting more and more surprises, this is a new baby honeysuckle that showed up a couple years ago in my front yard (never know if they'll be white, yellow, pink or fuchsia when birds plant them.
This little Russian Olive was also planted by a bird by our garage..smells so good to walk out to the car.
More honeysuckle and olive in the Back yard under a large old apple tree.
Spireas and Barberries under a baby cherry tree..and another Russian Olive....they are everywhere.
Everything has that special softness this time of year, like the new growth on the white pine above, against a canadian hemlock..loverly...
A side shot of the house with my Hugelkultur bed in the foreground, can't tell but it does have lots of things growing on it..also there are baby whips of Peach trees one on each end of it. The trees along the deck are dwarf pears and there are two more babies around the front corner.
a little end of our pond, and more olives..yes, and willows and barberries of course..
and to end this post PURRRfectly, a shot of my favorite little girl, Greystoke..more fluffy stuff..
