Bedrock Garden Friends
The Best News of the Year is that the first meeting of the newly formed 'Bedrock Gardens Friends' occurred in January. [It has since incorporated and is now has a 501(c)3 tax-exempt status as 'Friends of Bedrock Gardens'.] Its goal is to preserve Bedrock Gardens as a public garden, Carol Evans was facilitator. Ooooo-eeee!
Part of Colby-Sawyer College's Adventures in Learning was a studio based course. Jill docented a tour, and tutored on welding.
We continued to host and officiate at Weddings in the gardens. They are very moving experiences.
Lots of animals this year, including our first time ever moose. Our guinea hens had keetes. A flock of 17 wild turkeys hung out forever, and and a real Blue Heron hung out with the bronze storks. Can you believe that there are four garter snakes in that coil by our front door?
On the Property
The Allée Saga Continues...
After cutting down our wonderful 400-foot Allée of Korean Mountain Ash, we stumped them (Ron Cote and his excavator again), and planted Chinese fringe trees. Can you see them dwarfed by the piles of mulch surrounding them?
The Tea House
The Tea House gained shingles, a rock garden, and a babe.
and we enjoyed welding...
...and the plunge pool...
