Oh boy, here it comes. These warm temperatures are bringing loads of flowers out in the Winterthur Garden. The Winterhazel Walk is almost in full bloom with Korean Rhododendrons and Winterhazel planted with hellebores underneath. The “Wada’s Memory” Magnolia in the Sundial Garden is almost fully open. Cherry trees and shrubs are blooming just past Magnolia Bend. Twinkly Italian windflowers blanket the upper March Bank. Such fun!
Too much to tell you about. (Sorry!) Grab your membership card or get an admission tag in the visitor center. Whatever you do, don’t miss spring in the Winterthur Garden! Recommendation: come at least once a week from now until mid-June to see the unfolding drama and color.
If you’re really into cherry trees, the Delaware Valley is a fabulous place to see them. No need to drive to DC! Check this out: http://www.greaterphiladelphiagardens.org/column.asp?BlogID=138
