More of my visit and some beautiful flowers in bloom.  I've yet to see these magnolia trees bloom and must make a point of trying to get here when they do this year.

Potted flowers as we make our way to the gardens.

Crepe myrtles are getting their leaves

Siberian Iris

roof iris

Eastern red bud.  I guess it's trained this way.  Looks like mostly gnarly limbs hanging down with pretty heart shaped leaves.

Chionanthus Virginicus
or Fringe tree

Nice garden seat to sit and take in the garden

natural area with tree house for children

Inside the library there was a table set up to try one's hand at paper folding with instructions
This is a display of origami on the book case

The rose topiary is just beautiful
