Has the late winter fatigue got you down, Long Island? Here's the first in a three-part featurette about places to look forward to when the weather gets warm. I'll mostly be letting the pictures speak for themselves. These were taken during a trip late last March with some of our very dear homeschooling friends. It was a pleasant, clear day, and the girls were simply in awe of the surprising bounty of blooms, many of which they were unfamiliar with. Even with all of the blossoms, the leaves of the deciduous trees were just starting to appear on the branches.
Planting Fields Arboretum (1395 Plainting Field Road, Oyster Bay, 516-922-9200) has no shortage of indigenous as well as exotic flowering trees, bushes and plants to make for a magnificent springtime visit. As part of the New York State Park system, you can avoid a vehicle use fee on the peak days/times of the year by purchasing an Empire Pass.
Now that I think of it, it's time for me to get hopping renewing my Empire Pass! How are you getting ready for the Spring?
