Once every three or four months I go to Mercer Arboretum they always have something blooming every month of the year.
This water lily is one of the first things you see after you enter the Arboretum grounds.
This double layered orange flower really caught my eye.
I wish I could grow beautiful deep pink flowers like this. What a beauty!
One of the improvements at the Arboretum is the lake has been cleaned out, and a new Chinese tea house with benches has been constructed. They also added a peninsula that extends into the middle of the lake. The tutles love the new cement logs which are great for turtle sun bathing.
This is one of the many paths in the Arboretum. Several spots along the way have benches where you can take a break.
Gorgeous Star Gazers. One of my favorite flowers.
Another improvement to the Arboretum is the water wall. Can you see the water streaming down in between the columns?
Across Aldine Westfield is a park where you can picnic or do more hiking. Click for more information, directions or hours: Mercer Aboretum.
