The on and off rains are helping our flowers grow in nicely.  This week’s blooms are full of fun colors, shapes and textures! From frilly peach trumpet flowers to fuzzy red powder puffs and yellow, starlike jessamine flowers, the Garden is truly a rainbow waiting to be explored. Make sure to read Georgiann Keller’s audio blog below to learn more about what’s blooming in the Garden. Then lace up those walking shoes and come see those flowers in person!
