What's blooming and budding at the abbey


Spring officially begins later today. Here in the Blue Ridge foothills, we’re still weeks away from the full riot of High Spring. But the spring blooming and budding have started, and we’re gathering momentum.

Blooms on a young peach tree

Wild redbud at the edge of the woods

Blackberry shoots on the edge of the rabbit patch

Day lily shoots by the hundreds

I believe this is sedum.

New growth on the fence roses


Heather — non-native, experimental

Pear trees by the neighbor’s pasture
