There are many choices here, as this sign indicates. For this choice, we took the high road. That took us to the Visitor Center, the Rock Garden, the Ground Cover Garden, and the Yao Garden,
Nature plants the lichen and moss.
Another Edgeworthia, and a place to stop and smell the...flowers.
The water feature in the Ground Cover Garden.
More fragrance from the Daphne Odora.
Into the Rock Garden.
Moss spore cases on stone.
A white needled fir, I think.
An early rhododendron.
The Visitor Center terrace, one of several places I sat to enjoy a sunbeam.
Once a wine cellar on the original owners estate, now it looks more like an elf house.
The Yao Garden is wonderful even when nothing is blooming.
And then we took the low road to complete the almost two mile loop.
As we returned to the Visitor Center on still another path, we found this lovely Camellia. It seemed to be saying "Happy Valentine's Day!"
