The Garden is ablaze with color and blooms!  This week, keep an eye out for the sausage tree along Tram Road. This tree has large crimson flowers that turn into sausage-shaped pods. While they are edible, only animals with very strong jaws, like elephants and hippopotamus, can break through the tough shell. If you’re planning on visiting the Garden on the weekends, make sure to stop by Dottie’s in the Koi Pond for a cocktail and other delicious treats every Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Invite a friend and make it a date.
