The Lay of the Garden

Going to great heights in a quest to capture swarms has given me some new perspectives on our garden (literally). Before I took down the ladder this afternoon, I snapped a few bird’s-eye shots of the garden.

Yikes!

 

The 'Santa Rosa' plum is in the foreground, and Mondo is just peeking out on the right. In the background, you can see last week's hived primary swarm, 'Juniper' (so named for the tree in which it landed).

The garden's edge, where with any luck the grapes, artichokes, and lavender will take off this year.

The heart of the garden. Yesterday's swarm is hived just in front of the greenhouse (we'll see how that works out!).
