Ellyn Thomas

When the road where Ellyn Thomas lives was widened, 21 Cedar trees were removed and she has replaced them with many lovely Red Bottle Bushes. There are others around her home. At this time of the year they are filled with many red blooms that are being enjoyed by hundreds of bees. The bees will pollinate the flowers which will enhance many bright red flowers next spring.
Ellyn has lived here for 54 years. Her Kumquat tree is filled with fruit. The Brown Turkey Fig and Muscadine Grapes will fruit later in the year. The Yellow Buff hens seem happy there and the Black Standard Cornish rooster is definitely in charge. She has a rack of lovely potted plants. The pink one is her favorite. What an amazing collection of special things in her yard!
