One more set of spring garden photos. 🙂 While I was outside yesterday, a deer was munching on grass around the foundation of the main house. She was about 40 feet away from me, but I got a few pictures with the telephoto lens. She put her head up to look at me periodically but wasn’t too concerned that I was watching and clicking pictures. Those big ears are cute.
I also took a few quick pics in the garden. Here are fresh green ostrich fern fronds that emerge each spring in the back planter box under the shade of the oaks. I love the extra bright green at their tips. These are behind the deer fence or else they would likely be eaten.
And here is a rare old rose, Gruss an Coburg, with the most delicious fragrance. It has a pretty peachy color and an unusual flower form. The bush itself gets a bit lanky but is worth growing because it repeats bloom all summer and has an incredible scent. It’s not a long-lasting cut flower though (I get a day or two from them).
I posted a picture of Climbing Pinkie rose last year, but here she is again this spring. The bloom should get heavier later this week with warm weather predicted.
