POSEYS AND CHICO ....

When we first moved into this place .. almost 7 years ago .. there was nothing growing but mowed pasture grass all around the house! Slowly we have created gardens and stuff ... many of our gardening friends have contributed this and thats so we have quite an eclectic set-up and a great conversation piece to walk around in!

These pink Roses were a gift ... they are "Super Bunny Lady" and below them are "A Daughter Daisys", which have HUGE blossoms!


Another gift were these "King Rabbits' Guy Lilies" straight from Holland! That lighter green thingy in the back is yellow hops ... every year it grows up a 25' pole at the corner of the old barn. Very cool! The green feathery thing toward the left is Bald Cyprus trees! The Arbor Day Foundation sent them in the mail one year - along with another tree, neither of which are for this climate. Three of the Bald Cyprus live on - they lose all their needles every fall and look horrid - dead actually - but then come back so pretty in the spring!
SHOW ME THE GREENS ........................

what beautiful flowers! This is a lovely photo of Chico too, there's a guest bunny at Gorgie Farm at the minute who looks quite a lot like Chico...

What do you have in the soil there that makes things grow so huge in just 7 years? Lovely--as is dear Chico.

Nice garden pics, rabbit saint. Hope you're using those hops in homebrew!
