Things to discover
What’s in Bloom | At the beginning of May flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) is blooming throughout the gardens at Holden, as is redbud (Cercis canadensis) near Blueberry Pond, in the Butterfly Garden, in the Display Garden, and at Lantern Court. Pictured: Cercis canadensis ‘Vanilla-Twist’
What’s in Bloom | The native northern blue flag (Iris versicolor) graces watercourses and pond edges in the Myrtle S. Holden Wildflower Garden, Display Garden, Suzanne and Jonathan Dick Streamside Meadow, Helen S. Layer Rhododendron Garden, and along the eastern edge of Blueberry Pond.
What’s that I see? It’s a frog! Stay very still and you might be lucky enough to take a photo of these shy amphibians.
Blueberry pond is also home to hundreds of waterlilies.
The pond is teeming with life and things to discover. Take your family to the water’s edge and look for dragonflies and frogs.
