Happy Spring! If you’ve ever seen the Winterthur Garden in late March, you may be wondering how ”the blue” is coming along on the March Bank. While the indigo hues of Glory-of-the-snow and Siberian squill are evident in the warmest spots, we are about a week away from the blanket of blue. Stay tuned!
Two events are fast approaching: the Bank to Bend lecture on April 4th and the beginning of the Wednesdays at Winterthur walks. The first W @ W is on April Fool’s Day when Michelle Stapleford will lead a walk among the Winterhazels. For a pdf of all the programs in the garden, take a look:
And speaking of birds, on Friday, March 20, Winterthur hosted the Delaware Nature Society’s birding series. The visit is featured on the DNS blog for March 21. We had a great time spotting 33 species of birds including a belted kingfisher, ring-necked ducks and a rusty blackbird.
