Bartlett Arboretum, Mothers Day 2011

We all went to Belle Plaine to the Bartlett Arboretum Sunday after dinner.  Ray and Nick made the dinner and we had a fantastic Strawberry Chantilly Cake for Nicole's birthday.
The Arboretum is owned by Robin Macy and is not usually open to the public.  However, she was presenting a concert and you had the run of the gardens as well as being able to listen to good music.  I had not been to the Arboretum since it had been sold and it is so nice to see all the changes that have been made.  Several hundred people were there.  Lots of bottles of wine and snacks.  We didn't bring anything more elegant than water.  Next time we will have to try to be more sophisticated.  There are concerts every month through the summer and I would like to go again.
