It seems the plum and early cherry blossom have a head start this year with the mild winter weather – so we hope for fabulous bloom on the late trees – plus the understory of bulbs and marvelous perennial plantings at VanDusen. A great way to enjoy the garden, watch an expert artist at work and learn some tips for your creative adventures.
