Cornell Plantations, Ithaca, NY

Last Saturday Mom and I went to Cornell Plantations. It’s hard to know what photos to put on my blog, because there’s so many wonderful things there! So I picked a few, and I hope you enjoy them! I love the container plantings at the entrance of the Robison York State Herb Garden:

I don’t know what this is (a hornet?) but I thought it was really interesting, and I love the orange zinnia:

I saw Goldfinches eating seeds from the Hyssop – I have hyssop in my front garden and goldfinches start eating the seeds in the fall:

There were tons of bees all over the herbs, but especially this mint:

The weather was absolutely gorgeous there – the best day we’ve ever spent there. Usually it is too hot and humid, or too cold and windy, but this day was j-u-s-t right!!
