Are you ready for Lilac Saturday at the Arboretum?

The Arnold Arboretum is moving its traditional Mother's Day Lilac Sunday to Saturday this year because of anticipated "severe weather."

This is like the swan boats

People seem to love it but I don't get it. Parking and traffic is crazy. I assume there are a lot of people in the park itself. Anyone want to weigh in that this is worth checking out vs say going last week or next weekend?

I love the Arbs and all but this seems like a good day to be anywhere else.

Side note - anyone else in Roslindale refer to the two different parts as the Nearboretum (south of Bussey) and the Farboretum (north of Bussey) or just me?

So disappointing

...when the Aboretum booted out the morris dancers. And I think the explanation was essentially "They distract people from looking at the flowers."
