April Showers, May Flowers

The garden had a fair amount of rain in the past few weeks, making way for some beautiful blossoms and healthy soil. Mint has already begun to spring up in the plots next to the Science building (feel free to snatch a leaf or two for your tea or baked goods!) and flowers are all in bloom around Lawrenceville– from saucer magnolias (below) to forsythias (my personal favorite).

Go out for a walk on your lunch hour or in between classes if you can…trees in bloom are a beautiful, hopeful thing.

What spring flowers will you be eating this season? So far we’ve got seeds for bachelor’s buttons, johnny jump ups and daffodils that we’re hoping to plant around the perimeter of the garden this season. Check out the article below for a brief summary of edible flowers…or wait till the cookbook is out!
