Unfortunately, I can't go this weekend, but here's hoping some of you can!

-----

Linwood Gardens is pleased to present the EARLY 2012 edition of the Tree Peony Festival of Flowers. The gardens will be open from 9 am through 5 pm on May 12 and 13, May 19, and 20, and May 26, 27 and 28. Please note that these include the usual three weekends of Saturdays and Sundays, and Memorial Day Monday as well, but has been moved back a week. There is no weekend in June this year.

Due to the early spring, the flowers will arrive early, and we will be open for Mother's Day weekend! Also, we will be visited by several musician groups this year:
     Recorders:  May 12, 1:00 pm
     Alpine Horns:  May 13, midday
     Bagpipes:  May 20, 10:00 am
     Dulcimers:  May 27, 2:00 pm

Any festival day provides spectacular views of the Genesee Valley, the summer house, and the rest of the grounds and gardens. The variable weather of spring strongly influences bloom times. The earliest tree peonies, the Japanese varieties, should begin blooming first, and current updates will be available on the website. Historical photographs are on display in the Summer House. If it gets chilly, there will undoubtedly be a cozy fire going in the Oak Room.

When you visit, the suggested donation is $8, which goes toward garden preservation. This donation also allows you to enter the raffle to win a tree peony. A $10 donation includes not only the raffle ticket, but also a guided tour.

There is no shade in the parking areas to allow animals to be left safely in your vehicle. As there are also several resident pets, for your pet's health and safety, please refrain from bringing any animals with you other than documented service animals.

A limited number of tree peonies are available for purchase, to be picked up in the autumn. Additionally, small gift items are also available.

Hot and cold beverages, soups, light lunch fare, snacks, and desserts may be purchased on site. Sorry, no picnic facilities are available.

As spring is providing a beautiful and peaceful setting here, we hope to see you soon!

Sincerely,
The Tree Peony Festival of Flowers staff and volunteers

I finally got to go on Memorial Day, and with the hot weather, there were almost no peonies... but there were a lot of other interesting things, including some wildlife...

... along with great trees and a nice (but hazy) view of the Genesee Valley and beyond.
