North Carolina Arboretum: 1 of 2

[Updated 2006.10.06 23:51 EDT: Added captions for some photos, at Kati's request!]

Yesterday we visited the North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Here are some macro and general shots.

The new bonsai exhibit is impressive. I'll blog that in the second post.

xris, what is the red-rimmed foliage at the top left? I've spent ages poring over your gorgeous photos of an area of the U.S. that I love!
