The garden is blooming at The Mount!

The path is lined with yellow blooms, and Ian says the Irises are budding. The garden has been buzzing with activity in preparation for Spring. The bulbs are blooming, including irises and jonquils. The worm farm has been prepped, seedlings are planted and coming along well, and the lawns are getting a tidy up. Participants in the garden development and succulent programs are also working on individual projects.
