Spring is really here and blooming! May 8, 2015

Willowwood is just about to hit peak spring bloom!
The Cherries, Crabapples, Magnolias and Serviceberries are all in bloom.
Many of the flowering shrubs such as Viburnums, Daphnes and Azaleas are in flower. Enjoy the beauty of the flowers but don’t forget to check out their scent.
The wooded trails are filled with blue Ajuga and the tiny light pink flowers are Claytonia virginica (Spring Beauty).
On the Wood Walk to the right of Pan’s Garden you’ll find that the Japanese Primroses are putting on quite a show! The warm temps have brought them out a little early this year.
The Wisteria vines by the Stone Barn and in the Cottage Garden and Rosarie are popping.
And of course, it wouldn’t be May at Willowwood without the beautiful blooms of the Lilac collection. The flowers have started opening and there should be a succession of blooms over the next few weeks.
