I wanted to share a few more photos from Willowwood Arboretum here today. Approaching the garden, there is a long driveway that winds through gently rolling hills. All along the edge of the road, the grass is studded with purple crocus. They are a charming little taste of what is to come.
The garden itself is divided into several areas. One of the wilder parts of the garden is made up of a path that meanders through the trees at the back of the house. Later in the spring, there will be a host of colorful primroses lining the path. Here is one of the first ones -- a tiny gem of purple flowers. The little stone bridge pictured above spans a small brook.
And look who was enjoying the garden as well -- a lovely bluebird!
Just a few notes on the mosaics here: You can find the templates for these mosaics at Florabella Collection. The pretty floral paper used in one of the mosaics is from Sarah Gardner, found here.
