Welcome to bellaluna's Member Page
i�ve been gardening on these 2 acres almost 10 years. before i came along it was an old apple orchard turned into a sweet native garden. sincere thanks to the gentleman who planted the black walnut, sequoia almost 70 years ago and to the others that added their great contributions. it wouldn�t be the great place of solace that it is for me without the contributions of gardeners long gone. there are several 100+ foot trees and a few orchard trees left. the fruit trees keep me busy with pruning throughout the wet and mild winters, a sea of bluebells every april (both beauty and bane), old clumps of peonies, and painstakingly lugged river rocked borders. i share this space with coons, possums (in the years when the coons don�t eat them), squirrels, cats, and birds (when the cats don�t eat them) and the ever present, beautiful and dastardly deer. mostly woodland gardens with deer resistant plants (nothing is deer proof, i�ve learned . . .)
update: and turkeys! 9! turkeys out in the back this evening! where the hell did they come from?
