Walk With Me

It’s a beautiful spring day – how about taking a walk with me through Red Butte Garden?

There are lots of Lenten Roses and these lovely Pasque Flowers in bloom right now:

The early daffodils and the dwarf iris have faded, but there are plenty of other varieties of daffodils in bloom and yet to come. I wonder how many daffodil bulbs they have – certainly in the tens of thousands – perhaps even in the hundreds of thousands:

Daffodils by the dozens

The paths are lovely to wander, with swaths of color on each side.

The cherry trees are in full bloom, with buzzing bees aplenty:

There are some very interesting flowers, like this odd green iris, which I barely noticed at first. A search tells me that it is called a “Snake’s Head Iris“:

Before leaving the garden, I spent a few minutes sitting by the pond, listening to the birds, and the murmur of the stream.

    Living in NJ, it didn’t seem like a visit to Red Butte Garden would be possible in the near future, but your walk is the next best thing! I’ve never seen Pasque flowers (interesting foliage!) and your daffodil and cherry tree photos are inspiring. Red Butte looks like a wonderful place; thanks for sharing!

    Can you believe all the daffodils? Every time I take a walk through I am amazed there are more than the week before! It’s a spectacular time of year. We’re so fortunate to have such a dramatically gorgeous spot to walk and ogle.

    Thank you! I needed some spring flowers right about now. 🙂
    Do the cherry trees smell wonderful as well as looking wonderful when they are blooming?

    227,000 daffodils (according to the website)

    So, so, so nice to see color. It’s randomly 80F here and so dry we’re under a red flag fire weather warning.
