Spring Will Come

Like your own gardens, the Montgomery Botanical Gardens experienced brutal winter weather in the last few months. Many plants suffered damage, some temporary and some maybe permanent. You probably look at the brown leaves on at least the tops of your shrubs or ground covers and wonder if you will ever see the brilliant green leaves or the colorful blooms of years past. Well there is always hope and even visual evidence of a reason to hope that the beauty of Spring will return again. The bright yellow Forsythia are already beginning to blossom in the gardens. While they are usually one of the first to show off in the Spring, late January is quite early to see the sprinkling of yellow blossoms along the draping limbs of this hardy shrub. The Japanese Magnolia is already showing off its early blossoms and the Pansies in the Daylily and Companion Garden are all vying for attention. Even the Daffodil Bulbs are pushing up through the ground and already bear a few bright yellow blossoms. It will bring a smile to your face and encourage hope in you heart for the coming of Spring when you visit the gardens and walk beside these brave and beautiful blooms. Come visit while they last.
