First Hike Through the Cherry Hill Gate

Through the Cherry HIll Gate opens the Hendrie Valley Trail system. Everything is still overwintering but there are plenty of birds, squirrels and chipmunks around. Make sure you bring some seed because they will come and eat from your hand. Unfortunately we didn’t have any.

We did find some signs of spring in a patch of early snowdrops.

We also wandered though the RBG grounds and found the Bloodroot Sculpture. It’s part of the larger Dan Lawrie International Sculpture Collection

The Hendrie Park Gates  – surrounding the South end of the Scented Garden – were constructed in recognition of the Hendrie family, who previously owned the lands on which the garden now sits. The fountain isn’t yet in working order but it’s still a lovely spot.
