Weary Blog Catchup

Nice shot of ‘Blue Ice’ hybrid bluestar (Amsonia hybrida) seen directly above.  I lacked the energy to keep up with the blog last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday so wanted to include some images from late last week.  I wont remember all the names of our excellent volunteers who, along with our dedicated grounds staff, did a great job out in the gardens.  We continue to plant in earnest and are trying to keep everything watered.  It has been a whirlwind to say the least!  Thanks to all!
