What better place to capture and share the beauty of God’s handiwork than the Arboretum?

For me, time at the Arboretum ― with my camera ― is FUN! I am never disappointed.

My favorite flowers may not be in bloom, but I may see a fledgling wren peeking out of a birdhouse, or take delight in watching children discover tadpoles in the pond. And once, I even had the unique opportunity to observe a chipmunk snacking on flower petals.

I like to come often. Things change quickly at the Arboretum. I have come at the right time…

  • to see blossoms I have never seen before, and
  • to linger and enjoy their aroma, and

…now I know when to watch for them in the future.

I encourage you to come often and linger long. Come with an open mind and you will never be disappointed!”
