The Leila Arboretum in Battle Creek, Michigan, isn't far from where Doug's brother, Dennis, lives. The three of us drove through it about a month ago. Near the entrance to the Arboretum grounds is a Fantasy Forest, created in 2015, by artists from around the United States, from the remains of a grove of Ash trees killed by an infestation of the Emerald Ash Borer.
I love that the Leila Arboretum found a way to create a magical place from a grove of dead trees.
