Have you been to the National Arboretum yet? It's AMAZING!! I'm sad to say that it took me living here for almost 2 years before I made my first trip this past Saturday. My friend Courtney goes there pretty regularly, which made her the perfect tour guide. There's so much more to see!!!
Did you know that each strand of silk on an ear of corn connects to a different individual kernel? That's how they get their nutrients. SO COOL!
Within the Herb Garden there are smaller nook gardens: medicinal, dye, and fragrance, to name a few.
There's also a Bonsai Garden! Bonsai trees always make me think of Bodley's Court.
Courtney also had us write some original poetry, and then we shared our poems with each other. Talk about an exercise in vulnerability!
Next time, I fully plan on exploring the original columns from the Capitol!
