      Open Garden Day at Broccoli Hall :humble brag:

      Good Morning, Koiphen!
      While we wait for baby fish to grow, the garden is doing its' thing! I started the garden here in 1985 on a bull-dozed lot, and had a
      vision of the English-style country garden I wanted to have. New York State has an ideal climate for the kind of perennials I love most and after thirty years of on-the-ground research that spawned good ideas, top-notch design help from a master horticulture designer, trial, error, wonderful surprise, much mulch and very good gardeners working with me, this joyful collaboration continues to mature in the best possible way. I've posted a pic of the beginning, and then, the May garden this year and the June garden over the last two weeks. Forgive my :humble brag: but I'm just so happy that the reality matches my fantasies. How often does that happen!
      Roses are setting up for next week when Broccoli Hall will entertain visitors on the Garden Conservancy Tour. This is my excuse to drag perfect strangers out to the pond and tell them all about the "elusive ki shusui."
      P.S. the bib Harry is wearing is to thwart his kill plan for my chipmunks!

      Love it all, especially the gates and cats. Do you have beehives?

      guys!!!!



      Cindy, the man who built the rustic work and carved the bears (!) is Hoppy Quick. He's coming this coming week to put in some gates -- one for the lower pond, one for the middle pond. Make life much easier for human to access netted ponds. Will post pics of progress.

      Very pretty. Looking at the varieties that are in bloom, it looks like you are just about a month behind us. My peonies were about a month ago, dead headed and just growing greenery right now. Yours are beautiful.

      Thanks, Nancy!
      That is a Tennessee Glade Fern. I bought a bunch of wildflowers from a nursery in McMinneville (sp?) and had no idea these ferns were going to be so successful. In fact all of the wild flowers I bought from Tennessee are doing beautifully in our zone.
