LaurelHurst residents recently hopped on the bus and headed up the mountain to Asheville where they had lunch and toured the beautiful gardens of the NC Arboretum. Lunch was spent at the Savory Thyme Cafe on the grounds overlooking interesting plantings and the mountains in the distance and eating sandwiches.  Then residents toured the Bonsai, Stream, Quilt and Heritage Gardens and enjoyed the Arboretum’s permanent art collection.  One resident commented, “Everyone should come see this outstanding place.”  LaurelHurst will definitely be back in the fall to see what new and exciting things are blooming then.Ruth, Pat and Jane enjoy the flowers in the Heritage Garden.
