With tomorrow, March 20, being the  the vernal equinox and official start of spring, I thought you might enjoy some photos of the Garden in bloom.  This has been a long and snowy winter, but our blooms are hardy and still look lovely despite the harsh treatment of ice and snow (with a little polar vortex thrown in.)  Enjoy the photos, I see there is another forecast of snow in our future!
