With this weather and these blooms, it’s officially starting to feel like spring! The Garden is showing off blooms from the entrance to the farthest parts of its 87 acres. Take a listen to Georgiann Keller’s audio blog below as you scroll through the pictures to learn more about what’s blooming, then grab a friend and soak in the sun while you look for the blooms in person. And if you’re here on Saturday or Sunday, make sure to stop by Dottie’s for a bite to eat. Dottie’s is open Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.!
