Early Morning Walk

As the landscape awakens with the sun's caress, the coolness of the early morning walk along this path does not foretell the heat we will experience this day.

82 degrees was the forecast for the day, so we headed out about 8 a.m. and began planting. The final section of deer fence had been replaced, and for screening we opted for an area of Photinia and in another alternated a few thujas among Viburnum tinus, total count 19.

It will take years for the plants to properly serve as a screen, but when it comes to our garden, patience is a virtue.
