A dull, wet day today. This is looking south down the road through the woods – about half a kilometer to the lane. The majestic magnolia is now almost in leaf and the rhododendra and lilac are showing nicely, with the buddleia struggling so far. Please note remains of mole hills and the mysterious stone semi-circle to left.
Now looking north into our fenced area with mower access, and a venerable old apple tree doing the business. Behind it a huge walnut tree is just coming into leaf. More mole-scars and a solar-powered scarer in place.
Some deer and several hares are already visiting us at dawn and dusk but luckily the fence seems to work all right.
