Last Sunday (not this past one- the one a week before- yesterday will be tomorrows post! ;)) a group of friends decided to have a pick nick at Cox Arboretum and Gardens after seeing some of My Photos. My husband and I were shocked that though many of those there had lived there as long as we had, very few had ever been! We're now finding ourselves to be the tour guides of this wonderful city. (Yeah, I know- I used to think Ohio would be boring too.) So to help anyone else out there in the area looking for a good time I'll start doing virtual tours. :) In honor of last Sunday, I will begin with Cox Arboretum and Gardens.
Cox is part of the Five Rivers Metroparks in Dayton. It is a favorite to photographers and there's no secret to why. It is mind blowing that such an incredible place is completely free! Even the butterfly house is no charge.
There is a great deal of wild life to enjoy.
Beautiful gazebos reflected in lakes and nestled in flowers.
Spring is my favorite time for this park. The tulip trees are out of this world!
You must see the cherry and apple blossoms that are everywhere! Especially Crab Apple Alee- an alley of apple trees that bloom in the spring- it's amazing and a favorite wedding spot in the spring.
The Butterfly House is beautiful to sit in and is very educational!
It's no wonder you often find photographers at Cox. It's a very popular place is to have portraits taken- family, prom, wedding, engagement, senior photos- all kinds.
