We're fortunate that we live only 10 minutes from the Arboretum, so we drove over this past Saturday to check out the Scarecrow Walk that started. I made the mistake of telling Sheila we were going to a "festival" and I think she may have been a little disappointed, but we had fun walking, playing, and exploring the gardens.
The gardens are fun for people of all ages. Sheila really enjoyed the fountains. I was mesmerized that gardens and land this beautiful exists in our back yard.
The photos don't really do this place justice at all. The point at which the gardens lie sits up fairly high and the view is incredible.
The sun started to set and the way the light was coming through the gardens was so pretty.
And of course the best part about visiting the Arboretum was watching Sheila's senses ignite. We had visited about a year ago for the Garden Railway right after Thanksgiving but we haven't been back since, so this was like a brand new experience to her.
I think I'm going to get a few of these photos printed to frame because moments like these are priceless.
