An explosion of perfume was in the air on Saturday at the NY Botanical Gardens!  The sights and smells were overload to this devoted gardener.  Even my husband was ooohing and aaahing!  The Cherry trees, Magnolias, Spireas and of course all those gorgeous bulbs and spring flowering perennials combined with the fabulous 80 degrees made for a spectacular adventure.  If you are looking for inspiration for your garden to add a new spring flowering tree, shrub or flowering perennial this will inspire and delight you!  I was so in awe I took almost 900 pictures!  Here are just a few! Do you have a garden you would love me to photograph? As I say, I am obsessed with gardening! So I will say no more but take you on a visual tour of the garden.  I hope you can get there yourself!
