Today in the Winterthur Garden, the Magnolia denudata “Elizabeth” is just opening with “her” pale yellow blossoms. In just a short walk to get a bit of fresh air, I encountered:
– Museum guests enjoying Elizabeth’s first flowers
– Near the museum store, Leigh Donnelly planting nearly 400 hellebores to complement the many boxwoods recently installed.
– Loes Hutmacher checking on the new plants just in at the plant shop. She reminded me that if I purchase just 6 plants, there’s a 25% discount. It’s time to add Brandywine bluebells to my home garden.
Recently, I spoke with Carol Long about expectations for the extravagent bloom in Azalea Woods. She promised to make a prediction after this weekend’s warm temperatures. Often, the azaleas are at their peak just in time for Mother’s Day.
Brandywine bluebells, magnolias, windflowers, redbuds and flowering quince are the highlights of the week for me. Come and enjoy the Winterthur Garden!
