Part one of a two part post in which we continue our
Search for Spring in the Arboretum.
Thunder, buckets of rain, and puddles deep enough for ducks to take a swim! That’s today, drowning in dreariness, but yesterday was beautiful…a great day for a trail walk at Holden Arboretum. That’s where we will continue the search for more signs of our elusive spring.
Let’s start at Lotus Pond where daffodils bloom in the foreground and no ice remains on the surface of the pond, ice that was still visible on our last visit a week ago. That’s definitely promising.
Out of the corner of my eye, I spot a few tiny clumps of netted iris. These irises are early bloomers, so they have passed their prime by now, but they are still lovely with their delicate shades of soft blue and yellow. I hope you agree!
We will end today’s walk, on the trail that leads into the rhododendron garden.
