The robins were singing and the sun was shining, so we decided to check out some of the non-shady sections of the arboretum that we usually don't get to see in the summer.
After we'd soaked up a little vitamin d, we took a little break at the overlook gazebo.
We also saw several birds in the rhododendron garden. This one was our favorite.
We were less excited to see this guy sunning himself along one of the ponds.
The narrow fellow in the grass wasn't the only one soaking up some sunshine by the pond.
These geese and their fuzzy babies didn't necessarily want to be in the pond, but it was better than being on land by Barley, I guess.
Barley was excited to do another loop through the shade after we enjoyed the flowers and ponds.
On the way back to the car, I stopped to take some pictures of flowers that made Barley smile.
We're linking up with Ruckus the Eskie for Sepia Saturday. Hope everyone else's day has been as beautiful as ours!
