Flowers and Birds About the Garden

Corgyncombe Garden Notes
A lovely antique quilt on display in Diane's garden of herbs. There are birds amongst the vines along the border.

The quilt reminds Diane of the quilts that Diane's great grandmother's cousin Lena made. As with Lena's quilts, the quilting is done with very tiny, neat stitches.

Yellow Warbler

Dame's Rocket grows wild along Corgi Creek and as eveningtide approaches it fills the air with a sweet Hyacinth-like scent. It is one of Diane's favorite flowers and comes in white, pink, and lavender.

In Thornton Burgess' "The Burgess Bird Book for Children", Peter Rabbit observed Goldy the Baltimore Oriole in the apple tree. Peter "never had seen any one more beautifully dressed and his song was as rich and beautiful as his coat."

A trug filled with lilacs, forget- me-nots, and bleeding heart.
