Here are some more pictures of our visit to Dawes Arboretum this Spring. These are from the Japanese Garden there.
When we saw this we wondered how many children may have ran through it to leave their footprints. LOL!
The lake in the Japanese Garden was just so beautiful. We could see very large Koi swimming all around in the lake.
The paths around the lake were beautiful with Azalea’s and other flowering shrubs lining them. We saw many locals who were using the many paths at the arboretum for their daily walks. If I lived nearby I would be among them. It was such a tranquil place to walk and I can imagine there would be something new to look at every day whether from the many plantings or from the many animals and birds who called it home. I noticed they did have a lot of fencing around some of the smaller trees to keep the deer away from them.
I think these were Duetzia shrubs although I could not find a tag for them. I am certain some of you wonderful gardeners will correct me if I am wrong on this one. They were filled with small white blooms.

We both loved this Osakazuki Japanese Maple. There was a slight edging of the leaves with red and the seed pods were red.
