As spring slides perceptibly into summer, the picture of the gardens
changes. Buds have become leaves and the Rhododendrons and
Azaleas are ablaze with color. (Azalea Walk pictured on left)
As the long hot days unwind, many palnts put on a show.
Around the dog days in August, the Eucryphias begin to flower.
