Arboretum Welcome

We live about 10 minutes from the Blandy Experimental Farm/State Arboretum of Virginia, and I’m ashamed to say that I rarely stop in even though I know what a treasure it is to those who love trees, plants and flowers. This weekend, though, Cam and I spent some time there with my friend Christy and her son Payton. It wasn’t the sunny day we’d hoped for, but we all enjoyed a two-hour hike around the grounds investigating the different tree species, ecosystems and gardens and, of course, taking photographs.

While I usually only post one photograph each day, I thought for a change of pace I’d include a group of photos since it’s hard to choose just one that encompasses the experience here. Cam and I decided that we’re going to make Blandy a regular stop on our photo expeditions now that we realize we’ve only just scratched the surface.

  1. How great these trees… This is a beautiful place dear Tricia, I imagined to be there, WOW! You are so lucky people. All these trees should be very old too… How exciting and enjoyable to climb a tree… I remember my childhood days… Cam and Payton seem to pleasure to be there. Thank you for sharing with us dear Tricia, With my love, nia
