Classes at the Holden Arboretum

I'm spending the week at the Holden Arboretum taking a summer class for educators called "Art in the Natural World". Of all the education classes I've had to take over the years, I think this may be the best one ever.

Of course I brought my camera. The gardens are beautiful, and I've taken over a hundred pictures so far. Today I'm posting some snap shots of the grounds, but later this week I'll post some pictures of the class and the artwork we are producing.

There is a wonderful program for families here. This is a living display of edible plants, and plants that like to be sat upon.

If you haven't been to the Holden Arboretum, or perhaps it has been a long time, try to get out to Kirtland this summer. The wet cool weather of the past few months has everything so lush and green. You can't help but appreciate how beautiful North East Ohio is.
