May Flowers Persist at Veblen House
The Veblen House garden, so loved by those who have lived in the house over the years, continues to bloom. Iris make a blue arc in the front of the house, perhaps a legacy of Elizabeth Veblen.
A Rhododendron was tall enough to elude the deer through the long winter.
A Fragrant snowbell (Styrax obassia) adds an oriental touch around back.
And a new planting at the edge of the field, part of a town-wide effort to bring back the native butternut, may need some watering if a drought comes along.
