neighborhood slideshow: Enjoying the warm weather in Nichols Arboretum
When the weather is as nice as it's been recently, the University of Michigan's Nichols Arboretum is full of people looking for the perfect place to relax, read, exercise or swim.
The "Arb," as it is called, located between Geddes Road and the Huron River. It was established in 1907 by the U-M's Department of Botany and has since grown to become an Ann Arbor favorite for those looking to enjoy nature at its finest.
Between mid-May and mid-June people can enjoy the Peony Garden that is currently in full bloom. According to an informational sign in the Arb, the garden was designed in 1922 and opened in 1927, and the collection is one of the largest in North America.
