Week 1:

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN YOUR GARDEN AT HOME

Things are popping up in the gardens at Highfield! Below are some pictures (taken by a member) of the hellebore from the far corner of the Sunken Garden.

There is a silver lining to having more free time in March and April. It gives us more opportunities to visit the spring garden. Through careful observation, one can see that gardens change overnight during this time of year. The transformation is even more magical after a warm spring rain. The lenten rose, hellebore, are in their full glory in the sunken garden at Highfield Hall. Naturalized daffodil clumps are budding throughout the property and the perennials seem to grow inches overnight. The gardens are now different every day.

Take time to walk your own yard and garden. Pick out a couple of your favorite spots or plantings and check them daily. You will be amazed at the positive forces of nature at work in your garden every day.

What are YOU seeing in your garden?
