This week’s theme for my Bloom Forum 52 Project was growth.  This week, for the first time, we drove downtown to the Cylburn Arboretum.  I wanted to check it out as a potential location for future sessions, but I also thought it would provide an opportunity to see some beautiful gardens.  Brian and I took the dogs down for a walk on a gorgeous evening this week, where we walked around for about an hour, taking in the sights.  Who would’ve thought that such a quiet, isolated sanctuary would be nestled in the middle of the city?!

The blooms did not disappoint.  These two images were my favorite from the evening.  I love seeing the new growth in nature each spring because it is a sure sign that summer is right around the corner.
