WINTERTHUR BLOOM REPORT #27

 October 14, 2020

68F, sunny

 

+: Abundant

fbb: Flower-bud

fb: Full Bloom

pf: Petals falling/drying

pb: Past bloom (few remain)

ber: Berries, fruits

 

Check these out:

 

  • Brilliant: The crabapple (Malus species and varieties) fruits are sparkling like fine red art glass at the edge of the Pinetum.  The birds are having a fine time with them.  Catch the show from the Pinetum bench that gives a view into the treetops.
  • Asters in all of the meadows: Asters (Symphiotrichum species) are in abundance in all of the meadows this week, in colors from white to pale blue to purple.  Take the mowed pathway from Garden Lane to the neo-classical folly to walk through a cloud of tiny, white daisy-like heath and calico asters.  Heavenly!
  • The show is at its best: The autumn crocus (Colchicum byzantium – lavender-pink with white center and Colchicum ‘Giant’ – lavender-pink) is blooming on the east side of Oak Hill.  Look in the lawn between the hardy orange trees & the native azalea bushes, or get a great view from the bench adjacent to the Quarry Garden.  Also found at the edge of the meadow along Gray Building Road and the corner of Cutting Garden Road.

WINTERTHUR BLOOM REPORT #26

 October 7, 2020

73F, sunny

 

+: Abundant

fbb: Flower-bud breaking

b: Some bl

fb: Full Bloom

pf: Petals falling/drying

pb: Past bloom (few remain)

ber: Berries, fruits

Check these out:

 

  • Brilliant: The crabapple (Malus species and varieties) fruits are sparkling like fine red art glass at the edge of the Pinetum.  The birds are having a fine time with them.  Catch the show from the Pinetum bench that gives a view into the treetops.
  • Asters in all of the meadows: Asters (Symphiotrichum species) are in abundance in all of the meadows this week, in colors from white to pale blue to purple.  Take the mowed pathway from Garden Lane to the neo-classical folly to walk through a cloud of tiny, white daisy-like heath and calico asters.  Heavenly!
  • The show is at its best: The autumn crocus (Colchicum byzantium – lavender-pink with white center and Colchicum ‘Giant’ – lavender-pink) is blooming on the east side of Oak Hill.  Look in the lawn between the hardy orange trees & the native azalea bushes, or get a great view from the bench adjacent to the Quarry Garden.  Also found at the edge of the meadow along Gray Building Road and the corner of Cutting Garden Road.

WINTERTHUR BLOOM REPORT #25

fbb: Flower-bud breaking

b: Some bloom

fb: Full Bloom

pf: Petals falling/drying

pb: Past bloom (few remain)

ber: Berries, fruits

.

Check these out:

 

  • Asters in all of the meadows: Asters (Symphiotrichum species) are in abundance in all of the meadows this week, in colors from white to pale blue to purple.  Take the mowed pathway from Garden Lane to the neo-classical folly to walk through a cloud of tiny, white daisy-like heath and calico asters.  Heavenly!
  • The show is at its best: The autumn crocus (Colchicum byzantium – lavender-pink with white center and Colchicum ‘Giant’ – lavender-pink) is blooming on the east side of Oak Hill.  Look in the lawn between the hardy orange trees & the native azalea bushes, or get a great view from the bench adjacent to the Quarry Garden.
  • Fairy candles: Experience the magic of the fuzzy white spikes of fairy candles/fairy wands (Actaea acerina), also called bugbane, in Azalea Woods inthe triangle along the east-west path nearest the 1850 House and along the serpent pathway in Enchanted Woods.
  • Gorgeous goldenrod: Walk the mowed pathways through the meadows to be immersed in goldenrod (Solidago species) flowers or stop on a hillside for a breathtaking view of gold.
