Here's what's blooming as of today, June 6

The lovely azaleas are blooming in the Woodland Azalea Garden! Don't miss the lilacs in various locales - so aromatic and beautiful!  Other highlights are the large yellow lady's slippers, wild geraniums, anemone and prairie smoke in the Wildflower Garden, the frilly and dainty irises in the Iris Garden and the peonies in the Peony Walk.  The Rock Garden and the Japanese Garden are serene and lovely this time of year. 

Check out the "dragon's blood" yellow sedum near the waterfall behind the Snyder Building  and the lovely alium and begonias in the MacMillan Terrace Garden.  The hanging container gardens are striking in bold blocks of color!  

Thanks for sharing the roadway on Three Mile Drive so all can enjoy the beauty and wonder: motor vehicles, bicycles, Tram and new pedestrian lane.

 

Now through July, construction is underway on an expanded entry and redesigned gatehouse to improve visitor experience.  Trees cut down due to construction are being replaced with sugar maples selected for more diverse fall color.  Please reduce speeds and thanks for your patience.
