Early Spring at Wave Hill

P1030127

I rushed up to Wave Hill after class last Friday. This is the year to appreciate early spring. The crocuses that were fried in seconds last year are happily showing off right now. Wave Hill has a really nice collection of them, along with many different kinds of galanthus, scilla, and helebores, plus carpets of Chionodoxa sardensis. I’m definitely heading back up once the magnolias start blooming. Can’t wait!

Only did tiny dance of joy after finding this.

This pairing is both over the top and kind of awesome.

They had a nice collection of oxalis in the alpine house.

      Every time I get impatient with the weather I try and remind myself it could be worse…
      Summer WILL come one day!
