On the way into Greenville we saw a sign for the North Carolina Arboretum and thought we would call in and check it out.

There are a few nice gardens and trails leading into the woods, best of all though was the bonsai tree garden with loads of really nice looking examples and instructions on how to cultivate a tree the bonsai way.

We finally walked some of the trails in the woods and made it back to the car just before really heavy rain and lightning struck.
