Minnesota Landscape Arboretum

Family trip to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum to start walking around the place. and a rough attempt to try to recall some of the wildflowers and plants of the area. This was our first time here since we moved here, and it is pretty darn big – something that would take a full day to walk and enjoy.

We stick with a short walk, flowers and fountains before searching out the in-construction clay/dirt house. Each of us were able to grab some mud, pound some sandbags, etc in order to do our little part. On the way back, chipmunks and a hummingbird seated and resting, pointing his needlebeak toward the sun. I see flowers that will fit in the holes of my garden. My favorite still the field coneflowers in all different varieties.

I have a map, and a look of all the trails. There will be many hikes here in sun and snow. Watching the beauty hide itself, get stronger, waiting for spring.
