Springtime at the Locks

While it's still a little early for viewing the annual salmon migration through the Chittenden Locks, the boating traffic is starting to increase (the small lock has been closed for the regular inspection/maintenance, but will reopen soon), the Carl English Garden has been busier than ever. Spring brings an outburst of new blooms and if you take your time walking through the grounds you can see some new arrivals. These photos were taken by Emily Dunn, a local high school student, who has provided us with many other garden photos while accumulating hours towards her community service. See how many of these flowers you can spot on your next visit.
