If a flower blooms in a garden, and no one is there to see it, does it smell as sweet? Well, you would have to ask Daniel Burke who was on assignment for us this spring capturing all of spring’s beauty throughout our region’s gardens. Click above to enjoy a video of our gardens, and visit our America’s Garden Capital web page to view more photo galleries and virtual garden tours.
Special thanks to our garden partners who collaborated with us.
A great way to preserve amazing spring blooms is through pressed flower art. With supplies you are sure to have at home, Longwood Gardens offers instructions to select, press, dry, and create your own masterpiece.
