Went to the Arboretum on Tuesday. I’d asked for an annual pass for Christmas and the Spouse got it for me. It was my first opportunity to go since Christmas. It was surprisingly busy for a Tuesday at 10 am.
Or maybe not. It was a beautiful day and supposed to be the warmest day of the week.
Because of the annual pass I didn’t feel like I needed to see the whole place at once. I sort of meandered around the edges and corners for a while.
There’s a list of what plants are blooming when, but I didn’t consult it before I left. I found out on my own that it’s aloe bloom season.
They were pretty spectacular.
The peacocks provided mobile decorations.
Went for a short hike on Friday. The Wonderful Spouse had the day off and it seemed like a good time to get out and do something when the crowds were a little thinner. The trail winds up a hill behind a local restaurant. I was surprised to find that my FitBit thought that the elevation covered was equal to ten flights of stairs.
