Spring is in full bloom at QBG! This is the perfect time to enjoy all the beauty of the season, and there’s no better place than right here!
The list of flowers in bloom is enormous but some highlights include crabapple and cherry trees, tulips, grape hyacinth, daffodils, magnolias, dogwoods and eastern redbuds.
Our bees are…well, busy bees! Stop by the Bee Garden and watch them buzzing in and out of the hives to collect pollen. Just as busy are the birds – our robins are looking for nest sites, the red-winged blackbirds trilling all around the Meadow, and migrating warblers are catching a snack as they continue their journey. Don’t forget to keep your eyes open for our charming Italian wall lizards as they warm themselves in the sun.
You can be just as busy at the Garden too! The QBG Store is stocked with great treats and gifts, and stop by the Children’s Activity Table on Saturdays from 1 to 4pm where kids can create a take-home treat. We hope you can make it for the Intergenerational Garden Open House on April 14, and be sure to mark your calendars for our 2nd Annual Arbor Fest on April 29 – an afternoon filled with family fun!
