Spring is on its way! Part 2

Here's part one of this series if you missed it Spring is on its way! Part 1
We head over to the Winter Garden to see what's in bloom. We were at the Arboretum with Catty back in early January and here's that post Off to the arboretum we go!

We find beautiful small flowers!

I love these trees and it looks like they have been painted gold

The colors on the Chinese paperback maples was amazing.  
The color was even more stunning in person.

Lots of blooms

Colors of hellebores that were new to us

There was a lot of amazing Chinese Witch Hazel

We find an azalea in bloom

"More Chinese Witch Hazel"

And so many of these small flowers

"Come on mom, we need to catch up to dad and D'light"

As D'light and Brett are hunting in the cedar trees, Catty and I enjoy the scenery

Watching D'light and Brett

We head over to the Graham Visitors Center

"I'm having a great time!"

We check out some the plants for sale

As we head out and we pass the fantastic gate

We start our way back home and find a final patch of tiny flowers

Of course on our way back we got caught in a downpour.  This adventure was a 13+ mile walk and Catty was still ready to keep going.  While Catty may be older (she's 11-12 yrs old) she has a lot of get up and go!  D'light was happy to be home and warm on his electric blanket.
Tired and happy dogs!
