Last week, the arrows were not out because the March Bank was pretty much the main garden attraction. Fast forward a week and we are in a completely different garden setting. For those who don’t know what “the arrows” are, they are white directional arrows that lead you through the garden to look at the flowering highlights for the week. Now through May, the path will change weekly and hopefully take guests through a garden experience that is new to them. As the past seven days have proved, much can happen in a week—or if it is cool, much can stay the same. Nature is the decision maker here!
The arrows begin at the back patio of the Visitors Center and wind through the garden. Currently the tour ends at a place where you can decide where you want to go: the Museum Store to grab a bite in the café and look at plants (this would be my first stop), to the museum or back to the Visitors Center via shuttle bus or by walking through the nearby Greenhouse area.
When visiting the garden, we tend to be victims of habit and take the same route each time. Take advantage of strolling through the garden without having to think about where you are going and enjoy taking in the new sites!
