Garden Bloggers Bloom Day at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

by Jonah Holland, PR & Marketing Coordinator, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

This morning I started out to document what’s in bloom right now at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. I didn’t get very far. After leaving my office and strolling through the Woodland Walk,  I quickly realized that this would have to be a catalog of simply what was in bloom just in the Woodland Walk portion of Flagler Garden, and  also a small area of the Garden known as the Robert Haskell Garden. There is SO much in bloom everywhere I look at Lewis Ginter!   This post was inspired by a post from Washington Gardener’s Blog.   Which was in turn, originally inspired by Garden Bloggers Bloom Day where  bloggers across the world can  share a comprehensive listing of the beauty of what is currently in bloom in their garden.

In fact, I have so many great photos that I’ll just put a few up here. If you’d like to see the whole set, just go to our Flickr page.

Rough Horsetail ( I know, it's not flowering, but I couldn't resist! I love it so much. My kids call it natures lego becuase the pieces of the plant come apart and then stack back together)
