Spring in the UW Arboretum

I went to the UW Arboretum today as the Magnolia blossoms are out and while walking around in the gardens I came across this beautiful bed of daffodils. It smelled so sweet in the Arb today and it won’t be long before the lilacs are in full bloom. From what I hear, it’s was 17 years ago that the Magnolias blossomed this early in the season. It’s been an amazing Spring so far.

    Thanks Donna. This truly has been an unusual spring with everything budding so early and I was so glad I made it to our arboretum before the rains came to knock down a lot of the magnolia blossoms. I’m anxiously awaiting the lilacs to bloom there.
