I visited the gardens today and took these photographs for you. Most of the azaleas were blooming. The rhodies were just starting. The primula were outstanding.

The garden is free on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. $4 for adults other days. Children 12 and under are free every day.

Enjoy!

The rhodies grow tall here---just like trees. Here are some views of their trunks.
