Beautiful Arboretum Photos

I was happy to find two batches of beautiful pictures of the Arboretum in my inbox recently. Taken by two different Arboretum visitors, Christine Tappen and Bart Zoni, they offer us two views of the Arboretum and its Spring splendor. Take a look at both these sets in our picture gallery. Thanks to both for making these available to us.

If you have pictures you would like to share, please send them to me (webmaster@arboretumfriends.org).

Arboretum Action

All this beautiful weather has super-charged the Frelinghuysen Arboretum's many gardens. Look at our recently updated What's In Bloom list (maintained by volunteer Phil Dahlen) and then enjoy a walk on a sunny afternoon at the Arboretum.

Plant Sale Over for This Year!

Just a quick note: this year's Plant Sale was pretty terrific for all who participated. The weather cooperated, the experts were wonderful and it couldn't have taken place without all the great volunteers and visitors. Thanks to all and just wait till next year.

This Year's Plant Dividends

One of the benefits of membership in the Friends of the Frelinghuysen Arboretum is that you get a plant dividend each year. Chosen from a number of beautiful specimens, these plants are great introductions to wonderful specimens.

Early Spring

As you have probably seen in your own garden, everything is blooming at once. Our gardens at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum are no different. Volunteer Phil Dahlen has begun his regular update of the What's In Bloom list where you can keep up with nature's race.

On a related note, the 34th Annual New Jersey Daffodil Show scheduled for next weekend (Apr. 23-25) had to be cancelled as the early Spring and hot weather caused the daffodils to come and go before the show.
