“The Arboretum now nurtures people in the same way it once nurtured trees. It feeds their spirits and souls, their minds and bodies. It provides somewhere to put down roots, to be part of and give strength one to another through its collective efforts, its coming together whether to fight that which threatens it or to nurture its young and old, each “tree” supporting and being supported by its neighbours.”
~ The Arboretum Story, 1991
prairies, woodlands, wetlands, and gardens–find it all at the arboretum.
A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.
Looking for a romantic setting? Look no farther than a garden. It holds so much promise of romance, magic, and splendor. The sights, the smells, the ambiance. Picnics in your own backyard. Set the mood. Make it festive. Make it romantic. Here are few ideas to get your started. More can be found on my Pinterest board.
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful
than the risk it took to blossom.

Pre-spring last night, a March sunset.
I took these last night with my camera phone coming out of the store.
March 1 = almost Spring
Yep, it does.
March is here
and that means spring
is ready to launch.
Let me hug you, March!
Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’
