This year I renewed my membership to the arboretum.
It's not nearly as close as the zoo, so I don't join every year,
but this year I felt the itch.
This week it was packed with people who went to see the irises.
They just blow me away.
And then there is this whole peony garden.
I wish I could go back next week. There are bunches of them yet to pop.
I love how the man-made structures flow beautifully with the gardens.
And sometimes the human "flowers" are my favorites.
Especially all the volunteers! They were everywhere, filling the beds with annuals.
Again making me want to go back next week.
The place was just erupting with lush green everywhere.
