Happy Arbor Day!

Aren't trees the greatest! Come show your appreciation for them by visiting the Garden! Not only is it free entry today, but the sun is shining, the weather is warm, flowers are blooming, and not to mention we're giving away free trees! I'm not sure there is a more perfect day to come visit the Garden!

This native tree was not in bloom yesterday, it decided Arbor Day was a great day to open up!

Many of our crabapples are blooming right now and they look spactacular! Here are a couple featured below!
