Wow, I think anything I post today will just pale in comparison to Beth's garden, which we've visited for the past four days! Thanks, Beth, for sharing. I think it's safe to say that we all adore your garden. Let's wind the week up with a relaxing stroll through the Laurelwood Arboretum in Wayne, New Jersey. FG's newest associate editor, Lynn Felici-Gallant, and I stopped there on our way down to Pennsylvania (more on that next week), and we got to revel in some springtime that was a little farther along than ours here in Connecticut. Take a gander.


I'm hoping that all of our technical glitches have been worked out and that you all got the GPOD email on time and in good shape this morning. If not, email me, and as I've been doing all week, I'll forward it on to our tech guys for investigation.... ugh! Bear with us. In the meantime, SEND ME SOME PICS OF YOUR GARDENS!! :-)

ancientgardener writes: When I was a child in Vermont many years ago we called the yellow woods flower with the spotted leaves "Adders' Tongues". I expect "'trout Lily is the correct name. Anyhow they make me homesick for the Vermont woods in springtime. Another flower we eagerly awaited was Trailing Arbutus. I wonder if they are still there today. They were rare and illegal to pick. The patch of hellebores is so lovely. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us, Michelle, and for your efforts in bringing beautiful gardens to us each day. Posted: 10:53 pm on April 27th
cwheat000 writes: That was a wonderful walk through the arboretum. The only bad part was, I don't think I burned one calorie. I learn so much from looking at other gardens, thank you. Posted: 8:55 pm on April 26th
bee1nine writes: This has been a fun little Spring mini tour at Laurelwood
Arboretum! Thanks Michelle for sharing!:) Have never had the
pleasure to visit.
Admiring too, those gorgeous pink hellebores..and the little
yellow lily flowers I know them to be as trout lily. One of
my delights each Spring and coming into bloom now!! Posted: 3:26 pm on April 26th
tractor1 writes: The Laurelwood Arboretum looks like a wonderful place to spend a day. I especially like that pond. And that ancient stump is a magnificent sculpture. Thank you, Michelle, you earned your weekend, enjoy? Posted: 3:04 pm on April 26th
tntreeman writes: well, i have Cedrus libani here but i don't have anorexic ones! now i think i must have one or three Posted: 3:00 pm on April 26th
LFeliciGallant writes: Hello tntreeman and Vojt, Isn't that skinny Dr. Seussian evergreen the coolest? I happened to take a picture of its label, and it's a Cedrus libani, or cedar of Lebanon. What a fun first photo trip with Fine Gardening this was! I loved reliving it through Michelle's photos. Posted: 2:54 pm on April 26th
PeonyFan writes: Great photos, Michelle, thanks. Grn Thum, the yellow flower you are asking about is an Erythronium (I am not sure which species, could be americanum); it is sometimes called dogtooth violet (b/c of the root) or trout lily (b/c of the dappled leaves). Posted: 2:32 pm on April 26th
hontell writes: I grew up in Wayne NJ, still work in Wayne and visit Laurelwood often. They originally bred azaleas and rhododendrons on the property and when they bloom it is amazing. Posted: 10:20 am on April 26th
GrnThum writes: What's the little woodland plant with the variegated leaves and yellow flowers? Adorable. Woodland plants have to be my very favorites. They never stick around long enough to get old and tired looking ;~) Posted: 9:53 am on April 26th
pattyspencer writes: Lovely garden - would love to be able to walk through it. Email working now for me - thanks Michelle! Posted: 8:36 am on April 26th
cwrosten writes: What a gorgeous clump of pink hellebores. Posted: 6:39 am on April 26th
meander1 writes: I also was intrigued by the "skinny sister" (cute description, tntreeman)evergreen but I was wondering if it was some odd variation of a deodara cedar. The season is moving along so fast that we are well past daffodils and, on the verge of saying good-bye to the dogwood blooms.
Had to be a treat for you, Michelle, to head a bit south and get your senses tickled by what's to come in your own area. Posted: 6:28 am on April 26th
GarPho writes: Beautiful photos of the arboretum, Michelle, and I'm always glad to learn about an arboretum I didn't know. I must visit someday. Posted: 6:22 am on April 26th
Tim_Zone_Denial_Vojt writes: Those are some great shots. Especially love the trillium and the birdhouse. The Dr. Seuss skinny tree is just hysterical! Posted: 6:18 am on April 26th
tntreeman writes: these pictures are like "deja vu all over again" since those plants all flowered here a week or two ago. good to see them again. is that tall skinny evergreen a Chamacyparis nootkatensis variety? i have other weeping/thin varieties here but not that one. i love them in other gardens but in mine they always look like the way too skinny sister you just want to feed Posted: 5:07 am on April 26th
