1 The daffodil border along Maple Avenue is simply spectacular!
2 There are several different varieties planted along the border.
3 The different varieties do not all bloom at the same time, but stagger for a period of about two weeks.
4 This is the herbaceous peony garden with plants sprouting and growing rapidly.
5 You can practically see the stems elongate!
6 This is the daffodil border behind the Tenant House, which was planted two years ago.
7 And these are the long lily beds also behind the Tenant House. Some of the beds have been planted with spring bulbs, which bloom before the lilies sprout.
8 One bed is planted with muscari, or grape hyacinth.
9 In between the muscari are the fuzzy fiddleheads of cinnamon fern.
10 In a nearby bed are the unfurling fiddleheads of ostrich fern.
11 This is a type of hosta pushing through the ground and lifting up some, as well.
12 This is a lovely fritillaria, or guinea hen flower. For obvious reasons, it's also called a checkered lily.
13 The hellebores are very early bloomers.
14 This is a purple twin leaf flower, which I purchased last May at my favorite garden show, Trade Secrets.
15 The perennial border near the greenhouse is growing like crazy.
16 A chartreuse hellebore is blooming there.
17 This is the perennial border next to the cutting garden.
18 The blueberry bushes are popping with leaves and buds. Bird netting is draped over the pergola once the fruit forms. Birds love blueberries more than any other berry.
19 The flower beds beneath the long pergola have been top-dressed so nicely and are also growing well.
20 The new pergola for these large wisteria transplants has been marked out with stakes and string.
21 This is the view of the farm from the terrace.
22 The boxwood shrubs on the terrace took a beating from a recent snowfall, but they seem fine now.
23 This garden faces the parking area and it's planted with mainly white blooming flowers.
24 This is a yellow magnolia just beginning to flower.
25 These lovely flowers are Virginia bluebells. Their buds are pink, but when open, they're a beautiful sky-blue color.
26 These old apple trees were expertly pruned over the winter.

29 The weeping cherry trees near the stable are in full bloom.
30 This white magnolia looks so pretty against the clear blue sky.
31 The Friesians were out grazing.
32 Wilmer continues forming the beds in the vegetable garden. Some of the beds will be planted very soon with onions and members of the brassica family - cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, etc.
33 The peas are sprouting along the fence.
34 And the first of the asparagus has emerged!
35 There is a pair of weeping red bud trees growing on either side of the vegetable garden gate, which are getting ready to bloom.
36 The weeping willow trees were blowing in the wind.
37 More weeping willows - Their chartreuse color looks so good in the spring.
