Beauty in the Gardens

A variety of Hydrangeas are in bloom in the MBG Southern Garden. Many people are strolling through the pathway and enjoying the beautiful blossoms or resting in the gliders and benches or sitting on blankets in the shade. 

The Pollinator Garden and the Daylily Garden are both attracting many great pollinators to the gardens.
