Visiting a botanical garden is always kind of magical. Maybe its the colors and the sounds, but walking through a path that is lined with lush green trees, colorful and fragrant flower bushes makes you feel you're in Wonderland. The Lexington Arboretum, in blooming season gives you exactly the same feeling.

A plus point for visiting the gardens is that there is no entrance fee and the grounds are open all day long.
