Hundreds of people took advantage of the warm weather Friday evening to walk through the Peony Garden at Nichols Arboretum. With 27 beds and more than 230 different kinds of peonies, it is home to one of the largest collections in North America.
Ann Arbor resident Kasha Newcomb and her husband Bill sat on a hill overlooking the garden and watched as children ran through its many aisles, their heads barely peeking over the top of the blossoms.
“I used to come here often with my children,” Kasha said. “I work at the hospital and to see the garden grow and go from half to full bloom is amazing.”
