Dear Friends of Untermyer Gardens,
The winter allows us to work on projects behind the scenes. Such a case was a re-routed path in the woods that replaced another path that was a bit too steep. Soil was delivered for the new ramp, and invasive shrubs were removed to expose a nice thicket of bottlebrush buckeyes. This led us to discover that we were in a grove of tulip trees, concealed by a mass of invasive Norway maples. Once they were removed, the grove could shine in glory!
