Join the Friends on a trip to Pennsylvania to see the remarkable Andalusia Historic House and Gardens on the Delaware River as well as author Jenny Rose Carey's private garden in Ambler.
The trip fee includes admission to both gardens, a guided house tour at Andalusia, and a box lunch.
After some unusually warm April weather, temperatures have fallen to more seasonal levels. The warm weather did promote all kinds of early blooming, though. This year, the bulb planting at the entrance to the Haggerty Education Center is a happy combination of white daffodils interspersed with orange tulips. The display is funded by a grant from the Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum.
So many plants are in bloom that it was difficult to choose what to photograph; I settled on the Bleeding Heart (Dicentra) plants sporting arched stems of lovely pink heart-shaped flowers and Witch Alder (Fothergilla) shrubs covered in white brush like flowers. Spring at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum, what could be better?
