Spring fever, anyone? It’s hard to resist finding any excuse to be outside these days. A leisurely stroll through the Gardens will be well rewarded this week.
Head down to the Gates Montane Garden. With the water features turned off for their annual spring cleaning, the birdsong is the main sound you hear, and they are busy just now! Find a bench by the pond, where you can watch them bathe and find food. See how many you can identify. Let’s see: he and she ducks, flickers, crows, robins…
Grab and bench or table most anywhere, soak up the sun, and revel that spring seems to have come again this year!
