What's in Bloom - April 2013

April 16, 2013 by Parks Conservancy Staff

Winter may be holding on with every last breath, but signs of spring are popping up all over Pittsburgh's parks. It's time for our monthly What's in Bloom series showcasing the park's seasonal gardens. Bursts of color are polka-dotting the landscape and our horticulturist, Angela Yuele, has captured every bountiful bloom.
