Spring is around the corner at Schoepfle Garden

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe much delayed sighting of our first flower of spring has finally occurred. While we usually see our first minor bulbs poking through just after Valentine’s Day. the deep and persistent snow cover kept them hidden until our recent thaw. While not fully open, the winter aconite, a member of the buttercup family, and snow drops have emerged. We are seeing the tops of tulips, crocus, and other spring bulbs pushing their way to the open air as well. As the spring progresses, we will see daffodils, hyacinth, grape hyacinth and other spring bulbs to color the walk around the garden. We will again be updating the What’s in Bloom page weekly or whenever we have news to report about happenings at the garden. Visit here, the garden, and the Metro Parks Facebook page for more information on flowers, programs and events for gardeners, hikers and nature lovers all throughout the area.
