Hi all. It's that time of the year again. The birds are chirpin. The fish, Koi, are swimmin, the chipmunks are just havin a good ol' time, and the plants are a growin. Yup that's right, it's spring-time and time for the annual Collingswood Proud Neighbors Porch Brunch, House, and Garden Tour. My Garden, Ferret Hollow Gardens is on the tour this year. It's full of native and ornamental plant species, many of which support the native wildlife especially pollenators. It is always a lot of fun to meet all of the hundreds of people that come through and a nice way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. Come on over to Ferret Hollow and see the gardens in full swing. The perennials are a few weeks early this year as with most other plants this year - the warm winter. There will be a few surprises in the garden. I'll have a lot of information for interested people/gardeners so just ask. Keep your eye out for the Queen Chipmunk of Ferret Hollow - Emma - who lives behind the waterfall and for the others, Stella, Mina, and Lena. Stella and Mina are showing signs of having pups and eating a lot. Lena, new last year, just started to eat out of my hands today - finally. Stella and Emma have been doing it for a few years.
The tour is on Sunday, May 20. Porch Brunch at 11am and the House and Garden tour at 12 noon till 5:30 pm. Ferret Hollow Gardens will be open at 11am.
Call or email me, Stephen Coan, if you should have any questions.
