Right now the azaleas, hundreds of which have been inherited from the former president who bedecked our campus with THOUSANDS of them each year, are in absolute full bloom in varieties of pink, purple, white, red. They line the ponds, which also function as storm water catch basins for the area) -- but in spring, are turned into riots of color and noise as ducks and geese make this campus their home.
We have several flowering trees along the pond -- dogwood, redbud, flowering cherry, a few weeping cherries and weeping willows -- I tried to capture a bit of the weeping cherry as it begins to lose its blossoms and dress itself in leaf ...
Spring is here!
