While these magnificent specimens are, to some, simply background at the height of Spring and Summer, come Winter they take center stage. And rightly so. I just started exploring the various conifer forests at the NYBG as part of a conifer identification class I'm taking this month. Also on tap were blooming crocuses and snowdrops. At this rate, we'll have daffodils in bloom in the next two or three weeks. Hope everyone is enjoying their Winter respite. Are you chomping at the bit to get out in the dirt again?
