Busy, busy, busy

I am hard at work on my trip report for the Myanmar Forest Department (see Shinlonga and Field Crew), but took a break to walk outside in the Garden because the weather is so incredible today.  I brought a camera along because, well, you regret it if you don't do this during springtime at NYBG.  Was glad to see that everybody else was also hard at work. [NOTE: The beautiful blossom is the "Green Jewel" cultivar of Echinacea purpurea (see Echinacea)].




Lot of beautiful stuff coming up in the backyard. This Purple Coneflower, or Echinacea purpurea, was a nice surprise.  We planted several last year, but I had completely forgotten about them until the flowers started appearing with last week's rain.
