Deb, The tunnel is a fun thing, We put an arbor up when the hedges were small and just let them grow through it, kept weaving the branches through it . It is at the top of the steps and only about 3 feet deep but there is another tree behind it that adds to the shadows, It is still suprising for me to walk down the steps and see everything layed out a the bottom.Several times I've gone down the steps and met up with a deer having lunch on the berry bushes. Today we walked around looking at everything now that the snow is gone, just alot of mud now. The lilacs have buds, the day lilies and irises are up about 3 inches and my black eyed susans are turning green. I see little purple tips where the hostas are and the sedum around the pond is bright green so it looks like most everything made it through. The dill and cat nip grow wild everywhere but its still to early to see how much of those will come back, tomorrow I'll check the blackberry vines, they are growning up the side of the greenhouse and were out of the winds so I thing they will be OK. I love seeing everything change daily.
