On Thursday after work Trevor and I left town so I could attend a Friday meeting of the MN State Master Gardener Advisory Board at the arboretum.
The meetings are always interesting, and the people are great, but I’m not gonna lie. . . the best part is walking around the arboretum after the meeting. We DID bring the camera this time, and we did get some nice shots–I couldn’t believe all the stuff that was already blooming down there in the south. At home my daffodils have barely started, and I have one tulip about to bloom, but at the arb everything is going full bore. I have some photos to share. . . you may be getting these all week, who knows.
There was an orchid show going on, and there were some amazing orchids in the conservatory–here’s one more.
Outside the tulips were amazing.
There was also a sculpture that I couldn’t resist. . . I tried to get Trevor to do some performance art, but he was having none of it. So I had to do it myself.
We also had some quality time with some great friends and some shoe shopping (always a win for me) so it was a great weekend. Now back to the grind! Happy Monday!
