Gardening where the sidewalk ends

Check Out the Bellevue Botanical Garden March 25, 2010

I visited the BBG last spring at around this time, when they were in the throes of revamping their perennial beds. It was a huge undertaking and it will be exciting to see how much things have transformed over the course of the year! Sadly, I can’t find my pictures from that visit, but if I do I’ll try to do a before/after sequence next week.

On an unrelated note, shrubs and trees are leafing out with wild abandon, since spring continues to advance with warm days galore. I don’t think my yellow-twig dogwood usually buds up in March… this one’s flowers are usually not much of anything special, but I liked this one branch that seemed to float out above the rest.

    Exquisite, Karen. Yesterday I noticed my lilacs are really close to blooming. My husband’s birthday is April 15 and usually I’ve got a lilac bouquet on the table. They’re definitely early and you’ll get zero complaints from me!

    I look forward to reading about your next outing. Sounds fun. Fingers crossed for good weather.
