First Day of Spring!

Happy first day of spring 2013!

Color is beginning to show in all places of the Garden, from the top of the Four Seasons Garden all the way down to the Rose Garden and everywhere in between.

Rijnveld's Early Sensation Daffodil    Narcissus  'Rijnveld's Early Sensation'

As usual, Rijnveld's Early Sensation Daffodil was the first daffodil to begin blooming in the Four Seasons Garden. Little patches of yellow speckle the flower beds now, but soon, everywhere you look will be a sea of yellow.

Weeping Goat Willow    Salix caprea   'Kilmarnock'

While you're looking down at our incredible bulb displays, don't forget to look up to see our varieties of Willow that will all be blooming in the next week if they are not already. They can be found in the Children's and Medicinal Gardens.

Enchantment Toadflax    Linaria  'Enchantment'

Around the same time as our bulbs begin blooming we also plant our cool season annuals which often includes Linaria, Viola, lettuce and cabbage.

Irises     Iris    spp.

Right now the Rose Garden has the best display of Iris in the Garden, soon to be followed by the Floral Walk. Don't forget to visit frequently to see the garden color evolve!
