It seems like you can't walk anywhere in the garden now without being confronted with color and fragrance. Low growing groundcovers such as Thyme and large trees like the Golden Chain Trees are in bloom right now, and let me tell you, they are spectacular.

There's no better time to visit the garden than the present.
