Another garden awaits spring clean up. This is the entrance to the gazebo Zen-design garden. We are pleased to see many honeybees hard at work in the heather in the foreground. There is much discussion locally of a destructive virus that has severely diminished their supply and activity. We need them to pollinate our flowers, fruit, and vegetables.
It is so nice to have our deck ponds clean and the waterfall connecting the upper and lower ponds humming away. The gentle sound of cascading water is surely one of nature's most pleasant gifts. Now we have to work hard to keep the various types of algae under control.
