At the Arboretum 2/13/24

A freshly fallen blanket of snow covered the grounds at the Arboretum late this afternoon. As the sun was setting, the Frelinghuysen Mansion looked serene and peaceful surrounded by snow with a regal Gymnocladus dioica (Kentucky Coffee Tree) standing sentinel in the foreground. The Bacchus herm at the end of the Holly walk by Matilda’s Cottage sported a snowy cap and cold shoulder and the delicate, strappy flowers of the Hamamelis vernalis ‘Red Imp’ (Red Imp Witch Hazel) seemed immune to the snow covering the shrub.
