Monday. First visit of the season to see what's new, what's growing at the moment. Disappointed to see the Japanese Maple is gone from the fountain area. The tulips have just come up -- quite a few have opened, but it looks like most will open within the next few days. The blossoms on the trees have just started -- only a few buds here and there. Some of the lilacs have budded as well. On the whole though, things are just getting started. It's nice to see all the green!
