Witch Hazel “Chantal” in Full Bloom

Witch Hazel “Chantal”

We have five or six newly planted witch hazel plants throughout the gardens. This one, “Chantal,” is offering the best show right now in the Secret Garden.

Other fun news…
Yesterday, I observed honey bees at the bird feeders. After a bit of research, we learned that this often happens when the weather first breaks and flowers are not yet available. The honey bees like the dust in the cracked corn feed.

This morning while checking on our “Bird Tales” station, a red-breasted robin was surprised by Miss Honey, and quickly flew back to the shelter of the woods. I also observed two chickadees swapping back and forth their calls:

P.S. Today is the anniversary of my mom Margaret’s birthday 2/22/1941. May she rest in peace.
