Beacon is still in bloom for what is shaping up to be a long floral season, with the healthy doses of rain we’ve been getting. The lilacs, dogwoods, and magnolias have just started opening up. There was a time, for two or three seasons in a row I seem to recall, when it did snow on the new magnolia buds. But so far... well, I won’t say more and jinx us. :)

Meanwhile, Beacon is famous for its chain link fences, and to be honest, the biggest benefit of the chain link fence is that you can see through it, letting in light which is good for plantings, and it doesn’t fall down as easily as soggy wooden fences do. (Though I love a good, soggy, mossy wooden fence. So atmospheric.)
