You can read my previous blog entry about Ravine Gardens at this link. In that article, I recommended that you visit this unique state Park in Palatka, Florida in the spring time so you can see the many flowers there in bloom. January through April is supposed to be the peak blooming season and Lynn and I wanted to check and see what’s happening up there so far. We’d hate to miss the peak flower time.
Eastern Redbud Tree in bloom at Ravine Gardens
There are a few flowers and trees in bloom already. We noticed the very pretty tree above right away. Most azaleas had buds, but there were very few so far in bloom. The 15th annual Azalea Festival is planned for March 5th this year, and we think that the azaleas will be at the beginning of their peak about a week before then (end of February). So if you want to see this place at it’s best, start planing your visit!
