A visit to the dentist aka arboretum

When I set off this morning, my destination was the dentist’s office for my semi-annual checkup; however, as my dentist’s office is over halfway to the arboretum, I thought to myself, “Why not?” As in why not go to the arboretum after the teeth-cleaning routine is over and done? So that is what I did, and, HOORAY!, the cloud-cover dispersed, turning an overcast morning into a beautiful day.

My first stop was the butterfly garden, just in case a few monarchs or other species had postponed their migration. Unfortunately, there were no butterflies, but I still enjoyed a delightful bimble through the garden. I ended my visit with a stop at Lotus Pond where a frog favored me with a photo opp, an unusual occurrence, because frogs usually plop into the pond before I can press the shutter button. This frog sat still as a statue, almost as if he wanted to have his portrait taken, while I tiptoed around him, searching for the best angle to snap his picture.

Most of the pictures I took today were flowers. With autumn advancing faster than I want it to, there will soon be no flowers left to photograph. I’m thinking I will soon have to plan a trip to the Cleveland Botanical Garden. Meanwhile, I’ll make the most of the autumn’s beautiful colors, one of the very best reasons for living in northeast Ohio.
