Before I even arrived in Baltimore, Maryland on Friday afternoon, Brian had already constructed a creative to-do list, listing six local “must see” attractions for our weekend in the Mid-Atlantic State. Our adventure commenced at the Cylburn Arboretum, a 200-acre public garden located in central Baltimore. We followed the winding trails through its floral settings, all encircling the ground’s focal point: a renaissance-revival mansion constructed in the late 19th century, its stone façade rising behind a colorful mansion-front garden. As I reflect on this experience, I realize that no amount of words can sufficiently describe the beauty that we witnessed that day. Instead, I include photographs which capture but a small portion of the majestic beauty that this garden has to offer.
