“Go ahead, Bridget.”
Today RVSue and I go to the arboretum!
In case you don’t know how to say it, you go, Arr-bore-EE-tum. Got it?
Now, I’m going to tell you about the pictures, instead of RVSue doing it.
Okay, let’s start the tour. This is the entrance where you pay ($10 adult/free for dogs).
As you know, RVSue doesn’t buy things. Where would we put a cactus garden anyway. And we don’t need those lizards!
We walk through the potted plants and take the trail.
“Oh, and Bridge… Don’t forget to tell them that the plants in the arboretum come from all over the world.”
Hoo-boy. I hope she isn’t going to keep butting in while I’m trying to do this tour!
I love to walk on sidewalks and paths. There are a lot of them at the arboretum. We walk far!
RVSue says, “Are you getting tired, honey?”
When she says that I turn around and stand with my bum toward her. This way she knows to pick me up and put me in my car.
Here I am in my car . . .
We zip around a bend in the path and come to a big water dish. RVSue says it’s a “water feature” and not for dogs to drink.
We come to some buildings.
RVSue lifts me out of my car and walks me around, so my legs don’t get stiff, she says. After this little break, she puts me back in my car and away we go to see more!
They stop and pet my head. They say stuff like “Oh, isn’t she cute!” Or “You wouldn’t be spoiled, would you?” I think that last comment is impolite, but I don’t let on. RVSue smiles at the people and we keep going.
We see a silly blue frog that’s bigger than I am!
RVSue pushes my car right up to this creature’s face! I’m glad when we leave HIM behind!
That’s the truth! I thought we’d never leave the butterfly garden!
Next we go to the cactus garden.
I’ve never seen so many!
Luckily, RVSue gets the idea to sit in the picnic area. We go to a table by ourselves and she lets me walk around on my own. I’m too tired. I lie down under the picnic table and watch people go by. The shade is nice and the dirt is cool. .
“Well, we can’t see it all today. It must be around noon by now. I bet you’d like a drink, wouldn’t you, honey.”
RVSue is all mixed up and doesn’t know how to get out of the arboretum!
She has to ask a lady walking with a cane and wearing a funny hat. The lady says, “Go that way and turn left. You’ll have to go up a hill and then you’ll be at the back of the building.”
