Early Signs of Spring

While it may not feel like SPRING (and we heard there is more snow predicted…), wonderful signs of Spring are already evident at the Willowwood Arboretum!

In small patches of sun, the Hamamelis (witch-hazel), Eranthis( winter aconite) and Galanthus (snow drops) are in bloom and I saw a small patch of purple crocus as well. They warm the heart and the soul. We are on high alert for the first signs of daffodils and will let you know as soon as we see the first one.

The Blue Birds have not arrived yet. Several of their boxes were blown down in the storms and these will be repaired and put back up as soon as our staff can reach them in the snow.
