May Activity

Coming Into Bloom

Magnolia Tree Comes into Bloom

Birds arrive daily and take up residence in the magnolia tree, forage among the plants, and pull worms from the ground.  Insects flock to the area.  The magnolia tree wore a diminished crown of blossoms and within a day, the wind stripped them off, casting them to the ground where they lay like pale pink snow flakes and green leaves appeared on the boughs.  The chickadees protest every time someone walks by their nest in the trunk of one of the quad-branches.

A gift of friendship is sharing plants

The Pattersons are sending a box of rocks to add to the pathways, perhaps even a pudding stone which is rather uncommon and a prize indeed!

On a lovely early May evening several friends gathered together to celebrate in what we now call the “Laughing Labyrinth.”
