We got a bit of snow last night, considerably more than is in this photo.  Visitor Service staffer Laura Flournoy took this image just before the Garden closed, about 4:30 p.m.  Six to 8 inches later,  with temperatures around 20 degrees, and with the Garden and paths covered, we will remain closed to visitors today, Tuesday, Feb. 17, 2015 and Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015. Enjoy the snow day and stay safe! We’ll reopen as soon as paths are clear and it is safe to do so.

Here are our first photos of the Conservatory after the snow storm. Thanks to Facility Maintenance Manager Steve Sawyer who braved the snow to take this photo (and to Visitor Services Coordinator Robin Gregson for sending it along).
