Oh, What A Beautiful Weekend!

This weekend was picture perfect.  I think I’m getting all drunk with two weekends in a row being sunny and beautifully filled with Spring time.

My favorite flowering tree this time of year is the great Magnolia.  So beautiful and the petals are so soft.

The arboretum is hosting “Big Bugs” now thru August.  Really I thought they were live bugs before I saw that they are Big Bug sculptures.

I also discovered that St. Francis is really the patron Saint of animals.  These Geese were all about hanging out near his statue.

Along our journey we came about these beautiful flowers called “Common Bleeding-Hearts” in the Grotto.

I’d like to thank my lovely assistant Bean…she’s the bestest!

I’ve said this before but this is one of the best birthday gifts I’ve ever gotten.  I love this place so much and since I have a membership I can go back as many times as I want.  It’s my spot 🙂
