The daffodils are in full bloom throughout the garden; approximately 150,000 of them!! The majority of the bulbs are located in the Four Seasons Garden and along the Floral walk, but you can also find them popping up in many other gardens.
Four Seasons Garden
Spring appears to be right around the corner! Throughout the garden
various bulbs are starting to push their leaves through the soil; some
have started blooming. Things are beginning to green up and even a few
autum crocuses couldn't wait for fall and decided to bloom now.
Galanthus nivalis Snowdrops
Snowdrops can be found throughout many of our planting beds including the Floral walk and Herb Garden.
Our new Rose Garden is in its final stages and scheduled to open this spring. Here is a wintery sneak peek to get you excited for its grand opening.

If you haven't had the chance to visit the garden this winter, now is the perfect time. The snow really brings out the colors within the garden.

Big Tooth Maple Acer grandidentatum
It seems like just yesterday that we couldn't wait for the snow to melt so we could get out and work in our gardens, and already some of us have had to break out the snowshovels. The summer just flew by.
See! I kept my word. I updated the blog.
So far I've taken pictures and blogged about various places around our gardens, but never anything inside our buildings.
We have a collection of plants in our greenhouse that we rotate through
our Orangerie to keep it beautiful. Since they require a warmer
climate to survive, the only place you can see them is in the
Orangerie. So next time you're here, be sure to take a look inside.
The term "fruit" has many different meanings depending on the context. In botany, a fruit is the ripened ovary together with the seedsof a flowering plant. In cooking, when food items are called "fruit", the term is usually used for those plant fruits that are edible, sweet and fleshy.
Below are some examples of fruits in the garden.
