Something in the Air two

fruiting Quince,Cydonia oblonga-"Aromatnaya"
flowering Quince,Chaenomeles speciosa "Cameo"
Trillium Cuneum
The great white trillium
adolescent hens
every year I cross the many hybrid lilacs in my collection, there are several hundred seedlings here on the bridge, ready to be planted out in the field. They grow much faster than you would guess

The new chicks are growing and sample fresh greens now, as well as their chick starter formula.
The great white trilliums made their appearance, and the spotted cuneum is fully open can never have enough trilliums!

All the Quinces are blooming, my all time favorite is "cameo" double peach,even the fruiting quince is getting close to bloom. The quince tree has been trained in to loops for fun...we'll see how it matures.


  1. My gosh, I love all the circles you create—around your mother's tree, in the quince branches. You are giving me so many ideas. Just gorgeous.

  2. Incredible life you seem to have made for yourself! Bees, chickens, plants galore...I love stopping in to see what you're up to.

  3. I love the fruiting quince and that you are training it in loops. Thanks for stopping by my little corner. There will be more alpine shots as I will be low this year on things growing in my own garden. I am not doing chickens this year. Hopefully, next. I will watch as yours mature. Love the blog and all that you do. You are talented and inspiring. Beth
