Spring Cleaning at the Princeton Botanical ARt garDEN ("Barden" for short)

Sunday workdays, 10-1, recommenced this past weekend. New areas are getting cleaned up and cleared of Japanese honeysuckle.

The shed/horse stable has gained some nifty suspended bottles to hold hardware, thanks to Andrew, and a chandelier. That was Rachelle's idea.
There's usually room in the parking lot, but sometimes on Sundays it fills to overflowing. FOHW is exploring ways to accommodate more parking.

Back in the 1920s and 30s, the Princeton ridge was a mecca for horse riding. Though actual horses are not allowed in Herrontown Woods, kids get to ride "Champion" while we're working in the gardens.
