Walk Thru The Arboretum

Across from my work is the county Arboretum full of any and all kinds of local foliage.  It was a lovely day so I decided to take a tour.  There was a school group there on a "scavenger hunt" and I could hear the teacher yelling for them to remember to be able to name the plants they find.

Part of the area is being rennovated so I couldn't tour the entire site.  I did catch a honey bee diving for goodies.

The rose garden was in full bloom, but most of the blooms were faded making way for new ones.

Later in the year they have a Camellia Showing complete with blue ribbons and such.
