This weekend is ideal to wander our gardens and natural areas to enjoy tulips, flowering trees, spring woodland wildflowers, and early azaleas.

In the Gardens around the Nevin Welcome Center

Hundreds of daffodils are in bloom on Conifer Slope and in a new planting along the Bioswale Garden.

Many varieties of tulips are blooming in the Young Flower Garden.

The first of the rhododendrons are blooming on Comstock Knoll, including Rhododendron 'Mary Fleming,' planted last season (shown above). This is one of 12 varieties planted in the rhododendron collection that were bred by Guy Nearing, whom the Nearing Summerhouse was named in honor of.
