Spring Color at Lake Wildwood Clubhouse
(Posted May 13, 2001 © Herbert E. Lindberg)
The Lake Wildwood Clubhouse and Pro Shop grounds are beautiful at Springtime. In early Spring, the huge dogwood trees along the walk from the parking lot give a display of pink and white, while a double-blossom cherry tree adorns the 18th green. Then come early blooming azaleas, followed by rhododendron shrubs as large as small trees, and later-blooming azaleas. As I walked from the parking lot to my semi-monthly meeting of the Environmental Management Committee in the Cedar Room on May 10, it was clear that I had to go back home after the meeting to get my camera. Below are a few selected snapshots. I put these together with an equal number of shots I took on April 22, to give an eight-picture tour of Spring colors at the Clubhouse. Each picture is dated for your reference, because the color display changes with time.
As you park your car in the lot below the clubhouse you are greeted by a display of rhododendron and azaleas.

At the top of the walkway climb, another display greets you as you approach the valet drop-off point at the lower entrance to the Clubhouse.

More color greets you as you proceed up the walkway toward the main-level entrance to the Clubhouse Cedar Room and Pine Room.
