This Saturday was so pretty outside, I didn't want to stay indoors at all! So Vlad and I spent the early afternoon grabbing a Greek gyro for lunch and then walking through the Greensboro Arboretum. It's almost the peak of this spring season so all the buds are finally opening into full blossoms and adding a sweet fragrance to the air.
The Arboretum is a unique collection of blooming trees, sculpture art, and wildlife. It's "come sit and enjoy the scenery" atmosphere makes for the perfect afternoon of leisurely strolling. Vlad and I were both intrigued by the way they labeled every different kind of flower, shrub or tree, letting you know exactly what you're looking at. My favorite was the Japanese Cherry Blossoms that were in full bloom with the last few buds opening. They were so delicate with their pastel colors and silky petals. The butterflies flitted through the branches landing from one blossom to the next. It's days like these that lifts my spirits and makes me think anything is possible in such a beautiful world. Thank goodness spring has finally sprung!
