Many of the exhibits represent the trees that grow in certain areas of our mountains. This one beautifully reflects the trees around Mt. Mitchell.
This tiny rhododendren was getting ready to burst into full bloom.
I stood in awe of tiny trees so wonderfully shaped, looking exactly like their giant parents.
We were fortunate enough to find a gardener trimming one of the trees. Using small scissors, he is thinning the leaves.
Not everything at the arboretum is small. One of my favorite works of art is huge! A Native American stands with his hands up to the sky. The full figure bronze, titled "Oh, Great Spirit" stands more than 12 feet tall.
