Everything's in Bloom

IMG_8550.jpgWell, almost. I got to walk around the Arboretum last weekend where I visited the Hosta Show (some terrific examples of these fine plants) and also enjoyed the splendid garden displays. There were astilbe, baby's breath, clematis, butterfly bush and seemingly hundreds more in riotous display.

Date Correction: Friends / Dig-It Tour

Friends don't let Friends drive down to the shore on the wrong date!

The date for the upcoming garden tours down at the shore was listed incorrectly in the recent Summer issue of Arboretum Leaves and here on the website.

It should be Wednesday, August 5, not Tuesday August 4 as listed.

Please be aware that there is no bus going to these gardens, you must drive yourself. We do encourage carpooling. Please check out all the details on our Events page.

Hundreds of Plants in Bloom

Our volunteer, Phil Dahlen, writes, "The gardens are looking great, [thanks to] all the rain and now sunshine and warmth and last but not least some of the deer have been evicted thanks to the fence."

Thanks to Phil's efforts, the What's in Bloom list was updated yesterday. Don't let a few raindrops keep you from seeing the Frelinghuysen Arboretum in all its June glory.
