Bloom Report 5.7.2021

“Mother Nature presents neither a wrinkled face nor tottering form, but constantly renews the bloom of her youth, while time fills up the volumes of her history.” -James Lendall Basford.

Spring has settled in and Willowwood is now bursting with blooms. The main event- the annual lilac display- is now starting to reach its peak as blossoms are opening up in bold hues of pink, purple, and blue. Many crabapples have been planted in the main garden during the past few years so visitors will also spot some additional bright blooms near the lilacs. The next week is also a good time to see the last of the spring bulb display as the daffodils and tulips are beginning to fade with the warmer weather. Now is the time to enjoy Spring at Willowwood with your family among the peaceful gardens.

Please note that Willowwood is open daily 8 am to Dusk. The Restroom, running water and other buildings are not open but there is a porta john available. Please follow all social distancing recommendations.

The gardens are open Mother’s Day but no activities are planned. Lilacs WILL NOT be sold on Mother’s Day. The Annual Lilac Party is postponed this year. Our NEW DATE is May 15, 2022. Look forward to seeing you then!
