A Summer Walk at Winter’s Hill Estate

Great time to leisurely walk around the meadow, into the woods and down to the vineyard. Along the way you’ll pass patches of brodiae, and False Solomon’s Seal which has gone to seed and likely bumble bees fast at work collecting pollen and eating nectar. Watch for the bluebirds and the acorn woodpeckers too. When […]

Waiting for the Monarchs

I’ve been checking for eggs on the milkweed for some time now. I’m anxious to know that the monarchs will find the milkweed again!

The shoots are 4 to 8 inches long with 3 or 4 […]

New Growth and Old Memories

Hiking through the vineyard today, it is clear that the growing season is underway, no matter how reluctantly the cold dreary winter recedes.
