It was a perfect spring day, sunny, clear blue skies, fluffy white clouds, low 70 degrees. Lots of visitors enjoying the grounds, the blooming Virginia Bluebells (Mertensia virginica, a lovely spring ephemeral), and the delicate flowers of several different varieties of Cherry trees: the semi-pyramidal pink blooming Prunus avium cv. Plena (double flowered Sweet Cherry), the lacy white blooming Prunus x yedoensis (Yoshino Cherry) and the light pink, frothy flowers of the Prunus cv. Accolade (Flowering Cherry). Visit soon!
