There is something so magical about the Arboretum in spring. I love to see the fresh blooms of spring peeking out. I love the fresh air and birdsong of April. Vivi noticed the hum of crickets. And the rain showers give me dreams of lush gardens filled with blossoms. The kids happily make their fairy houses and run free through the garden paths. Not to mention splashing in the fountains and sporadic rain showers, so happy to feel the cool water run over heads, hands, and toes. We shared the delights with our friends Jen, Emma and Ciara, and my dad (Grandpa) who is visiting this week.
