A Bulb and A Bloom



At Brooklyn Botanic on Friday, Susan, Anne and I checked for signs of life in the boxes near the children's garden. The boxes are planted with daffodils, crocus, hyacinth and tulips and designed by 2010's horticulture interns. Beneath the netting to keep out critters we found a bulb making its way to the sunlight. And then we were wowed by the display in the Warm Temperate Pavilion where the South African beauties like the Moraea below are blooming.
