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.
