In the afternoon Freddie and I visited Arnold Arboretum to see the lilacs. This was my first lengthy walk around the Arboretum, and I really enjoyed it. It was very crowded and parking was a bit difficult, but what a gorgeous place!

It's amazing how much of a variety there was, from color to size of flower, from single to multiple blooms as well as a variety in the fragrance. It's too bad you can't smell the beautiful scent!
The clouds moved in and the temperature dropped considerably while we were there, but we were both glad we had ignored the weather reports and risked taking our hike anyway.
