The Holden Arboretum is a journey to a living museum. It was another cool summer day to be drawing; however I managed to get in these sketches, What really surprised me is the Cedar of Lebanon. Somehow I was under the impression that they were a wonder of the world never to be seen again, lost in ancient history. When I was drawing this tree I noticed that it was very different form the fir trees that I have drawn before. The cones actually sit on top of the branch, I thought they were all birds. When I went over to check out the name of this species, I gasped in utter awe.
