Visit the Garden this Season

I have worked at the Memphis Botanic Garden for over sixteen years, and I am amazed daily at what new thing may catch my eye that I had not noticed.

Recently, I was going through the Garden and, as I approached the Blecken Pavillion, I was taken aback by the brilliant yellow fall color of the garden’s largest Pignut Hickory tree (Carya glabra). 

I have passed this tree many times over the years, through many autumn seasons, and never have I seen it so beautiful.   

I realize it is a privilege to see such beauty each day that I am at work. 

I encourage you to visit the Garden during each season so you too can discover and enjoy all that the Garden has to offer.
