Today the Roomie and I went on another weekend adventure. This time we went to Morris Arboretum. The Cherry Blossoms were blossoming and the Forsythias were Forsythiasing. It was a beautiful day for a walk along the garden paths. They have everything there as far as trees and plants but they’ve also got water features and giant nests in the sky. There is this scaffolding that towers over the small valley. It offered amazing views of the local college as well as the trees and other flora dotting the landscape.
The most amazing part for me was the fact that every part of the gardens had little hidden treasures. In one part there was two life size statues of John and Lydia Morris. They looked over a field surrounded by beautiful landscapes.
I took time to smell the Magnolias. There was a cove that had a plethora of Magnolia trees and the fragrance was delightful. It was a little courtyard that opened to a water feature. It sure was pretty!
Later I went to Wegmans for the first time. Very cool store. Did you know you can buy beer there? How awesome is that…Drunken food shopping. It’s pure genius! We ate dinner there too. It was like visiting a food amusement park 😉
p.s. No, I’m not southern but I did stay at a Holiday in once.
