Happy To Be Back In The Welty Garden

Weather having kept us away for quite some time,  the Cereus Weeders were happy to be back in the Welty garden last Wednesday for a day of weeding and pruning and marveling at some beautiful winter blooms.

One of the very earliest signs of spring, the crocus…

A drawing of french hyacinths by Eudora graces the front of the invitation to the March 27th luncheon celebrating the 10th anniversary of the opening of the garden to the public.  Click on the camellia in my sidebar for information and tickets to the event (it is filling up quickly and you don’t want to miss it!)

The French Roman hyacinths were drawn by Eudora as a valentine for John Robinson…

on the invitation you can see Eudora’s drawing…
