Field Trip: Guelph Arboretum

This wasn't so much a field trip as it was a weekly happening in my Landscape Resource Analysis class, but here are two images from the Guelph Arboretum. A fair chunk of the arboretum lands are actually reverting to forest naturally, so there are open meadows with the poplars (Populous tremuloides, natch) just creeping across. The asters are in their glory right now. I find the species here in Ontario bigger and much more vibrant than the varieties we get in Nova Scotia. There are more pink ones, too. Anyway, I just love them.

Clearly, these pictures are not from the class where we spent 3 hours walking around in the rain identifying trees.
