At the Arboretum 3/12/24

Spring is decidedly in the air! Blue skies, temperatures in the 60s and many plants beginning to break ground, budding and blooming. The Prunus mume cv. Kobai (Japanese Apricot) is in full bloom against the Carriage House wall, its flowers’ sweet scent wafting through the air, calling to humans and bees alike. The delicate little yellow/green flowers of the Corylopsis gotoana ‘March Jewel’ (Winterhazel) are beginning to open on the plant’s bare branches.near the arbor and a bunch of Hyacinth buds are getting ready to burst into bloom by Matilda’s Cottage.

Don’t miss all this early spring activity at the Arboretum! Picture credits: Margery Ennist.
