Apple blossoms.

Cherry blossoms.

That's a really big patch of forsythia.

Some sort of flowering plum.

More of the flowering plum.

Pink rhododendrons.

White rhododendrons, too.

There's a historic burying ground in one corner of the Arboretum, established in 1712.

The winged skull motif was a common decoration on tombstones of that period.

General view of the park. This is a dog-friendly park, and the paved trails also attract a lot of people pushing strollers or riding bicycles with their children.

Another nice view of the flowering trees near the main entrance.
