Bernheim Arboretum & Research Forest, Clermont, Kentucky

When you visit Bernheim Arboretum & Research Forest, you're going to want to stay awhile. This beautiful park is off of I-65 just south of Louisville. Every time I visit, I find a sense of peace and solitude that makes me want to stay for a while. Bernheim has a little bit of everything from wildflower gardens and lakes to forests and of course the arboretum. On this particular day it was a wee bit warm and henceforth most of the park's visitors stayed away. Lucky me! I felt like the park was all mine. I had a quick bite at the visitor center's cafe and took a drive into the forest but most of my time was spent in the arboretum and wildflower gardens. I've visited this park in all four seasons. Autumn boasts bright reds, oranges and yellows and is simply gorgeous. I hope you'll plan a trip if you're in the area. Here are a few of the digital pics I took on my recent visit. Yes, I spent some time in the butterfly garden. Can you blame me.


  1. Beautiful shots...your water lilies are stunning.

  2. Hi There,
