Once again I volunteered with the Master Gardeners at the Royal Botanical Gardens Tulip Festival. It has been a poor spring with the weather and the day I was there it was grey and spitting rain from time to time. That however did not deter the tulip lovers from coming out to the Rock Garden. I tried to get some names for those of you who would be interested but sometimes there is no tag... I heard that stolen plant tags are number one on the hit list at most public gardens.
|Now that I have your attention|
The Rock Garden is a sunken garden with terraced levels and winding paths made of local stone. Here are a couple of views from the top.
The main beds are full of colour
Of course it is not all tulips
An unknown viburnum (close up below) with a Cercis canadensis alba or a white Redbud
and a pretty cherry in flower
How lucky to get this shot. This apple is in the parking lot. As I was the first one to arrive I benefited by a car -less lot.
Goodbye from the Royal Botanical Gardens.
