An early spring!

Wow! The last couple months has been so unseasonably warm… our last significant snowfall was sometime in February I believe! As a result, we are having one of the earliest springs on record, and certainly by far the earliest I have seen in almost 30 years at the Historic Gardens. In reviewing my photo records, most of our bloomers are a good three weeks ahead of last spring, and last spring was reasonably early too.  Here are a few photos…

I invite everyone to come visit the Gardens early this spring. While we are not “officially open” until May, we welcome visitors every day on a “by donation” basis. Come out soon and enjoy the blossoms!

Happy Spring!
