I realized after last week’s post that I sort of adopted the idea from a blogger friend over at Adventures in Bee Land. Her version is awesome and if you’re interested in what’s flowering in England this time of year (i.e. more than is flowering in the northern US), you should go check it out! If you’re interested in what’s flowering in the Fingerlakes region of western New York, stick around. I’ll try to do a post like this every week for most of the summer.
For me, these posts flow naturally from my field work, which, essentially, is to know everything that is flowering, where, and when. Oh boy.
Ignoring some of the ornamental stuff in gardens, this is what was flowering the week of 21 April. You can see what was flowering last week here (and in fact, all of those things were still in flower this week).
This list is not exhaustive…in gardens around campus, there are daffodils and tulips, there are spring ephemerals in the woods and rhododendrons flowering in the nurseries, to name a few. But these are the plants flowering in my orchards.
