The lilac tree that is part of the memorial garden up there is just coming into bloom. This is a different type of French lilac, which blooms much later than our indigenous ones. It is quite striking. and yes, it is also fenced to keep it away from the hungry mouths of the deer.
By the end of the week, it should be in full bloom. Down at the Resort, the Mock Orange tree is covered with blossom and smells wonderful.
The blackberries are in bloom in the back field as well. The blueberries are done blooming and are starting to set fruit. All of which makes a walk through the fields a smorgasbord experience.
