Spring 2022 is finally getting started after a late winter snow and freeze.   The freeze destroyed many of the Redbud and Spicebush blooms that were just getting ready to pop. In spite of that deep cold the wildflowers are coming out slowly and looks to be another fantastic blooming year at the Townsend River Walk & Arboretum.   Keep up with what is blooming at 2022 What's Blooming.

 Rue Anemone is now blooming.  We are updating our 2022 What's Blooming Page every few days. Rue Anemone is now blooming. We are now updating our 2022 What's Blooming Page every few days.
