There were still some flowers in bloom and the trees were putting on a show too.
It was a perfect day for enjoying the garden and woodland trails that are a part of this arboretum.
I was surprised how many flowers were still blooming although there were also areas where the plants were sleeping for the winter.
I like the pitcher plants (shown below).
The pitcher plants were part of a water garden area.
The arboretum has 434 acres so it's quite extensive.
They have 65 acres of cultivated gardens.
They also have 10 miles of hiking and biking trails.
Although some of these shots don't include flowers I thought I'd give a tour of some of the garden and trails in this post.
The arboretum's Bonsai Exhibition Garden is very extensive.
The shot below shows how the bridges wind around for viewing the bonsai trees.
I don't think I've ever seen such a large collection of bonsais.
I fear this post is going to be rather long.
Even the parking lot was beautiful with the autumn leaves on the trees.
It was difficult for me to decide which shots to use for this post.
There were so many different parts to the garden and trails.
I'd like to go back in the spring and see their orchid collection.
In early April they have an orchid show and sale.
During the orchid show the educational center has thousands of different orchids.
When we were there they were having a chrysanthemum show in the educational center but there was so much else to see we didn't even go inside to look at that.
