Another Beautiful Day!
It was another beautiful, sunny day with a slight chill in the air (59 degrees F). That didn’t stop the crocus (above) or hyacinth (Hyacinthus) below from blooming nicely! We’re seeing more plants poking up each day. I drove 4 hours back from Sturgeon Bay this morning to arrive at the gardens with lots of action going on! Big John was edging beds while Larry H. was mulching. Larry O. continued to work on equipment and is prepping for some looming projects. Our volunteers included Kathy P., Maury, Bill, Greg and Cheryl P., Bev D., Myrt and perhaps some others that I missed this morning. Lots of action going on and we’re seeing more visitors daily out enjoying the gardens.
I could smell this hyacinth (Hyacinthus) before I saw it today!

Above is one of two holes that will become drains in the English cottage garden to help mitigate flooding issues which have plagued us for many years in that space!
