Thacher Adolescents Plant Ahead for Springtime Beauty

2008.10.24-Thacher-01

On Friday, October 24th, students from the Adolescent Program at Thacher Montessori planted spring bulbs in the “Front Garden” of the Wakefield Estate. In Spring, this formal hedged garden is one of the most beautiful areas at the property with the early blooms of the red and white Cercis canadensis (redbud), azaleas, and spring ephemerals including Virginia bluebells, mayapple, Jack-in-the-pulpit and trillium. The daffodils planted by the students will add to the tulip and tiger lily bulbs still present from Polly Wakefield’s work in this area, and will create an amazing springtime display.
