Three years ago I bought a few trillium bulbs and planted them in the shade garden. Nothing seemed to happen with them, and over the years I forgot about them. Last night, we were walking around our property, showing my sister the gardens. While looking at the shade garden, I noticed I had a trillium! I hope it comes back over the years and spreads. What a find.
I have seen a shed snake skin and glimpses of garter snakes by the tomato garden and in front of the barn near a rock border. Today, I was able to get a few photos. We then discovered a second snake just a few feet from the first one. There is a small hole in the ground near the foundation of the barn. I've seen a snake slithering into this hole.
I also discovered a large moth by the garage. It is about 3 inched long. Does anyone know what kind it is?
