Cedar Valley Arboretum & Botanic Gardens

March 2011 Tour

with one comment

After a long winter rest, we are coming back to life at the Arboretum!  Each season holds new opportunities, but to me, spring always seems to hold a bit more excitement than the others.  The daffodils are bravely popping up, green is creeping back into our lawns, and the birds are once again hosting early morning concerts.  Even the air smells fresher!

With the weather warming up, it has been difficult for me to stay indoors.  I really want to be out working in the gardens but it is still March …. so still many chances for snow.  I hate to be too overeager in the gardens and then get a few inches of snow dumped on all my work!  J

One day last week I went out to the Arboretum to take some photos of the grounds and gardens.  Not much to see right now, but it will be fun to look back at these photos in May when there is a lot of color.  These photos also give you a bit of a behind the scenes look at how we prepare for the winter in the fall (sometimes it takes up to a month to prepare!).

To view the photo album, click on this link:  http://cedarvalleyarboretumphotos.shutterfly.com/ (a free photo sharing website through www.shutterfly.com).  You can then click on the “Pictures & Videos” tab that will take you to the “March 2011 Tour” photo album.  Click on the album, and you can view the photos on a larger screen.

Below the “March 2011 Tour” photo album is another album from last fall – filled with some great photos, if you are itching to see some color. J

See you in the gardens.
