Laburnum Arbor at Bayview Farm & Garden

One of the things not to miss on our Island is the Laburnum Arbor at Bayview Farm and Garden.  It blooms in early June letting you know that Summer is not far off. The other is Meerkerk Rhododendren Garden in Greenbank.  This is a small painting down while sitting in the car in early May.  The entrance building is brand new, built by local artisans donating their time and although it makes you think of England, quite beautiful!
