Made my way to our local botanical gardens, Matthaei, this weekend. I got married here and I’m a little embarrassed to say this is the first time I’ve been back since then, even though it’s just a 20 minute drive away. I don’t intend on staying away so long from now on since this is a wonderful resource for me to come and snap my own reference photos for flowers and various plants. To my delight, I lucked up and visited on a weekend where they were having a beautiful outdoor Bonsai exhibit. It brought back memories of a failed attempt to do my own with a little bonsai tree purchased from our local grocery store. It wasn’t until we got home that we discovered that the poor thing was infested. Word to the wise, don’t buy bonsai from a grocery store. Get them from a reputable nursery.
Anyhoo, here are a few photos from my weekend adventure. 😊

Beautiful. The top Bonsai tree is amazing and the flowers on the lower one are too. The plant with the round head is, I think, an Allium…. it’s related to the onion (and smells like it too if you get close up). They are very pretty plants, many people here grow them for their flowers.
Lovely! The furry cacti remind me of ostriches.
