A variety of Daffodils in a vase.

Bare bones. Deutzia and Lilac in one picture, unpruned cherry tree in another. The 3rd is a view of a small garden east of the house with a bloodgood maple in the center.

May 2002

1) Hosta Undulata and wilding Herb Robert 2) Creeping Phlox 3) Apple blossoms from a Mutsu tree 4) Blue Columbine 5) dolphin fountain on the patio, backed by small patch of lawn and MacIntosh apple tree in front of fir and hemlocks 6) Forget-Me-Nots 7) Fountain backed by east garden, with a bank of daylilies on the left, and assorted shrubs right behind it, with the Bloodgood Maple at the top and a river birch and long-leaf pine with a much larger, dark pine tha was a Christmas tree to the far right. The Pieris is barely visible halfway up the hill. 8) Facing south, the southeast part of my garden. South of and below the house. This is very steep, but the camera flattens it. You can see a fencepost where the pasture began. There actually was grass and a poor, lonesome horse there. The shrub to the left is the Deutzia. Can't remember the name. We about lost it last year. The blue is all Forget-me-nots.

1) foliage of a tall perennial with aquilegia-like leaves. All I can remember of the name is "aquilegifolium"! 2) new growth of Bloodgood Maple, which I believe is Acer palmatum "bloodgood". 3) red rhody. This bush is over 22 years old, was given to me by my stepfather 12 years ago. 4) tan and purple iris
