Sad to say the tulips season at the Mansion is coming to a close. This year was spectacular with the addition of almost 800 bulbs in the new cutting gardens along with the established 600 plus in the back gardens. The guests enjoyed overlooking all the colors and varieties while they relaxed in the library, as well as enjoying the fresh cut ones in their rooms.
With our temperatures warming signs of summer are now entering the gardens. Just this week the iris have begun their wonderful display, this is a photo of one of our varieties that a guest donated from her garden to ours. What a treasure! The Lilacs are openings and enhancing not only the sense of sight but also the sense of smell. Mixed with our fresh Montana air, it doesn’t get much better.
This year we added a new peony bed that greet our guests as they enter the drive way. With 4 varieties and colors it is a wonderful array of color. Pictures just do not do them justice, you will just have to make a trip to Missoula and see them for yourselves. Don’t wait to long….or you will miss them.
