Independence Day II: A Morris Mosaic

2 Morris Plant_4809 aAfter our ramble through the Wissahickon, and lunch in an air-conditioned restaurant, my friends and I were refreshed enough to take on the Morris Arboretum in Chestnut Hill.

Originally a summer estate, it became part of the University of Pennsylvania in 1932.Besides a wealth of trees, plants and flowers, every summer the arboretum hosts a wonderful garden railway. In addition, this year it is also hosting the BIG BUGS! exhibit. Arboretum Collage White2 Morris Plant_4854 aBug CollageMorris Arboretum_6487 aTrain CollageMorris Arboretum_6769 a
