    My husband & I went to the Arnold Arboretum in Boston to take a gander at the trees & shrubs just coming out of dormancy. The Arboretum is well known for its lilac display, but the lilacs are not blooming as yet.

    ACER GRISEUM. Really cool bark, huh? PXL_20210430_171958310_compress2.jpg
    GOLDEN HOPS. It grows as a vine. PXL_20210430_171558400_compress2.jpg
    NAMELESS TREE. Very cool, isn't it? PXL_20210430_171535345_compress69.jpg

    Looks like Cousin It, doesn't it? PXL_20210430_171442849_compress55.jpg

    Oh, that was a super display of what is going on there at the moment. I lurve going to an arboretum. I can see that you will be going back in a few weeks as more and more develops.

    That last foto— is that an Exochorda?
    That splayed-open nameless tree looks interesting. That is the way O prune and train our plum trees. I wonder if it was trained that way or if it simply grows that way.
    What unusual bark on that tree. It reminds me a little of some trees that I have seen in Oz.
    That Rhodi looks as if it is ready to explode.
    The syring plants look quite bare still. Ours have some buds at the moment, but they are lethargic.

    Thanks again mate for these great pics.
