The early arrival of spring-like weather has affected one of trademarks of the annual Come-See-Me Festival – the azaleas at Glencairn Garden.
Festival staff member Kathy Wilson said some of the garden’s azaleas may no longer be in bloom.
“We do try to time the azaleas with the opening of the festival,” she said. “However, this won’t be the first festival where azaleas aren’t blooming.”
The gardens are “lush and green” with other plant life, including the dogwoods, she said. The two-week festival begins Thursday, and crews have been steadily preparing Glencairn Garden.
Events at the garden include:
• Glencairn Garden Entertainment, four days of live, local music, including country, gospel and classic rock.
• The Master Gardeners of York County’s plant sale on April 21 and April 22 offers house plants, herbs, vegetables and perennials nurtured by the master gardeners.
• Sundaes with Glen & Mother Goose, which features face-painting, live music and, of course, Mother Goose and ice cream.
• The Town and Country Garden Club’s Flower Show exhibition from April 16 to April 18 at the Bigger House on the Glencairn Garden property.
