Plant Life: Welcome Spring!

Now that Spring is here, an abundance of plant life is in bloom around River Towers. The flowers on our four different types of cherry trees have passed their peak, but as you walk around the grounds, here are a few points of interest:

Redbud trees: These native trees have lavender blossoms in the Spring, followed by red leaves. We have several in the front lawn.
