The rain has finally graced us with a bit of moisture and more, thank heavens, is in the forecast. Temps have cooled, but still, the flower parade marches on.
The last of the camellias are in bloom - reds and pinks at the Arboretum, a few white along the lakeside trail ...
Redbuds are now in bloom, and here at work, the trees are begining to dress themselves in chartreuse ... Oaks are sending their pollen through the air, making allergy sensitive folks suffer with running noses and itchy eyes .. and already, the pine pollen has begun to turn our lake waters, cars, and sidewalks a bright yellow -- yep, spring on parade!
We're in the throes of spring frenzy in the greenhouse as well as the warmth and longer days of sunlight have given our plantings a boost - some of the flowers have even begun to bloom!
Hope your day is filled with joy and sunshine!
