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.
Here is the first time lapse video of the garden….April 2011
Note the video begins with the forsythia in bloom and the hill still brown and not cut back or mulched. Then the serviceberries bloom and the grass and hill start to turn green. The next installment for May should show the hill burst into bloom, pink and purple!!!!!
