More Photos from Ellicottville NY

"This day like all other days has left few traces
Old father time Wings us speedily on to eternity."
DIARY OF MATILDA BOWERS EBY, 1 JUNE 1863

Here are some of the photos I snapped when BettyLou and I took the self-guided tour of the Ellicottville Arboretum. The photo above is looking toward the Herb gardens.
It was an excellent way to spend a morning...strolling along the well maintained paths through the various gardens and enjoying the interesting selection tree and shrub plantings. I'm sure it would be glorious in late May through June when the trees would be in bloom. Late August is never a great time for garden tours since most flowers are either finished or are starting to look tired, nevertheless we enjoyed the day immensely.
Wouldn't this be a lovely setting for an early June wedding?

Here we are at the centre of the herb garden.

The pathway circles round this charming pond, where catch and release fishing is allowed. I have no idea what kind of fish one might catch but it made a pretty picture and that's what I was interested in.
A pleasant walk on sunny day that I would definitely recommend if you ever find yourself in the vicinity.
Until next time....Cheers!
Jackie
