Dawn at Liongate Farm- a Photo tour
Yesterday morning was the First glorious summer morning of the year.
Of course with such a packed weekend and a housefull of guests for Alex's graduation
I was the only one up prowling around to see it. I am usually up before the roosters and
yesterday was no exception..so with coffee and camera in hand I set out to check on the growing progress
of the place. I like a lot of things but gardening and flowers are one of my "loves"
First I ran into our night security guard Sara..she is always on duty
protecting the Rams from the cougars and my roses from deer destruction.
Then I ran into Slash, mouse duty extrordianare
yummmm some June bearing strawberries...I supplemented my breakfast
A new row of everbearing strawberries and the swing nestled in the daisy patch
My favorite Tibetan Mastiff wind chime
Our carnivorous Voodoo plant is blooming-it opened later on in the sun and the
smell is horrific-but it is cool to look inside and see all the bugs it traps
Just for looks
I gave in and caged the roses. They are beautiful! I have NEVER seen them before-the
deer always eat them first!!!1
The Rams were just waking up
Can you taste the sauerkraut???
My new artichokes-I lost all of my others in the freeze in December and a shot of the patio from the garden
Above is more garden...below here is some heather and a pretty little hosta, the guineas waking up ready for tick patrol
The peonies are in full swing
The front door clematis and some hanging flowers on the
Bridge to a pasture (currently being reseeded and growing great!)
a pretty spot and a silly tree face
Just a pretty pot of flowers
