At the Arboretum – 3/22/23
Spring is definitely on its way! Delicate white Dwarf Irises with pale lavender stripes (Iris cv. Painted Lady) have emerged around the pond in front of Matilda’s cottage; many bunches of cheerful purple Crocuses are blooming around the grounds and a Dawn Viburnum (Viburnum x bodnantense cv. Dawn) is beginning to bloom along the Four Seasons garden path next to the parking lot. Enjoy!

Winter Weather at the Arboretum – 3/14/23
A flurry of snowflakes and a blustery breeze accompanied my walk around the Arboretum grounds today. The meadow, gazebo and Pieris japonica flowers were covered in varying amounts of snow creating the appearance of a light sugar coating.
At the Arboretum – 3/6/23
This week’s photos offer a wide variety of late winter images. The persistent, dry, paper thin leaves of an American Beech tree (Fagus grandifolia), fluttering in the breeze and soon to be pushed off by fresh new growth. The evergreen, yellowish, flat foliage sprays of a Sawara Cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera cv. Filifera Aurea) adding a bright spot in the landscape. The delicate, deep pink flowers of an espaliered Japanese Apricot (Prunus Mume cv. Kobai) blooming against the walls of the Carriage House. Spring is on its way!
