Cape May's Spring Flowers
Cape May, NJ — There's been just a bit of chill in the air lately, enough to help keep the early spring flowers blooming while the newer ones pop up.
The result - a very floriferous spring in Cape May.
From the row of daffodils that sprung up early on Stevens Street in West Cape May (above) to brilliant yellow forsythia bushes blooming all over town (including the one on Corgie Street, below) the town is looking quite pretty these days.
Of course we always wish more houses planted spring bulbs, but the grand old Emlen Physick Estate did a good job. (below)
So did the keepers of the Circle Gardens in Cape May Point. (below) Those daffodils were some of the first to sprout up.
The blooms are not just on the ground. Flowering trees are at their peak. A huge flowering cherry tree is gracing the traffic sign on Queen Street, in Cape May.
Speaking of queens, the Queen Victoria on Ocean St. has an old iron urn already planted with spring posies. (below) If you prefer a more whimsical look, wander over to the John F. Craig House on Columbia Ave. to see their birdbath garden. (above, right)
You can spot all of these flowers from the sidewalks. Take a leisurely walk, before the blooms fade.
No matter if it's a magnolia on Washington Street or a forsythia on Shunpike, we thank everyone who went to the trouble of making spring so pretty this year.
