Here is a time lapse video of my hill garden from April 1st 2011 to may 31st 2011. It begins with the forsythia in bloom in the pot, and some bulbs. Soon the serviceberry trees bloom white and everything starts turning green. The Siberian Iris in the pot are growing, and when they begin blooming the bearded Iris do too way to the left of the image. The hill garden blooms in very light pink from the primrose and is also very purple from the catmint (although the video doesn’t show it well) Towards the end you start seeing the serviceberries turning red and our ladder is out so we can pick them. There was a lot of rainy days during this two months…and we did some entertaining towards the end of the video.
May was a great month for the garden! I spent a lot of time out there and am pleased that it looks as good as it does. It has rained quite a bit and everything is extremely green! I stepped back for some of these photos so you can see the design of the garden more instead of focusing so much on individual flowers. I hope you enjoy taking a tour of the garden, I wish you all could see it in person because the pictures just don’t do it justice. It is like a garden of paradise out there, with so many birds and animals, flowers and fruit, I am truly one lucky gardener!
