A Magic Carpet of Snow

Maybe Dragon Seeker wishes he could fly off to a warmer climate, but we cheer for gentle snowstorms that transform the garden into a winter wonderland. Dewey Webster, docent program coordinator, headed to the Garden on February 6 to photograph the first significant snow in three years. He reports that neighborhood families were in the field building snowmen and sliding down the small hill. See more of Dewey’s photos on the Garden blog.

Take heart, Dragon Seeker, spring is on the way and with it come the peonies!

Who is this doggie in the Garden ?

It’s Willow … with her companion, Laurel Seely.

The Garden is open to dogs with their two-footed friends, even those lacking this pair’s perfect garden names. Note that Willow is on a leash. Please bring plastic baggies for you know what. Our big field is great for walking dogs, but also is enjoyed by children and many other visitors. Woof woof !
