TULIP PLANTINGS AT THE FRELINGHUYSEN ARBORETUM
We weren't scheduled to send an eblast this week, however, we have just received the completed video of the Tulip plantings at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum and we're very anxious to share it with you. We know it's not the same as strolling the Arboretum grounds, but we hope you enjoy this virtual tour of the lovely Tulips in full bloom.
Thank you so much to all our Members and Donors who contributed towards the purchase of the Tulip bulbs and made this lovely display possible!
