It was still a bit overcast this morning, but the sun was trying its best to break out. We were busy inside most of the day yesterday so we really wanted to get out and get some air. When we want to take a walk in the woods without having to take a drive, the Arboretum is our first choice.
The first thing we noticed was there has been some upgrades around the Arboretum. All of the maps were replaced with new ones and there were trail markers at all of the paths. Both the map and trail markers were much more attractive and definitely more informative than the old ones.
Another thing we noticed were all of the buds and blooms through out the grounds. We didn't remember seeing a crocus field in previous years, but as they don't bloom for that long, it was entirely possible that we had just missed them in the past.
Spring is definitely on its way. The plants know it, the creatures know it, all we need is for the New England weather to get on board :-) [Permalink]- Arboretum in April
