It was drizzling when I left, but when I arrived at Cylburn Arboretum the rain had stopped. It was still overcast, but half an hour later, unfortunately, the sun came out. Still it was a good day to explore the Arboretum in spring for patterns and colors.

I don’t know what this is, but it reminded me of the fletching on arrows.

Spiky plant that looks a bit like agave.

The rain had just stopped and everything was dripping with silver balls.
