Today at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum – 3/30/22

A sad sight greeted me at the Arboretum today, the unseasonably cold weather caused the Magnolia x loebneri cv. Merrill (Loebner Magnolia) flowers to freeze and turn brown; I was encouraged, however, by the fact that not all of the buds have opened, so it’s possible that we may still get to enjoy some of the magnificent flowers. Several of the Hellebores were blooming very nicely, a lovely white one and a pale pink spotted one, were a sight for sore eyes.
