    Spring is bustin’ out all over the Garden this week. So many flowers are blooming, in fact, that it’s hard to decide what to be most excited about. Daffodil Hill is looking very Wordsworthian, several early blooming cherry and peach trees are going off, and the Shakespeare and Fragrance Gardens are filled with violets and pansies. For sheer mass of blossoms, though, it’s hard to top Magnolia Plaza. Some of the trees are in full glory right now, and others are soon to follow. Be sure to catch the show.

    Here in southern Illinois, we have dogwoods, flowering crabapples, peach trees, just about any species, in full bloom already. A little nervous about frost damage.
