It was a 'bloomin' zoo' at the Flower Show

'Dr. Doolittle's Bloomin' Zoo' greeted young and old alike at last week's Flower and Garden Show sponsored by the Matthaei Botanical Gardens. Visitors to the zoo crossed a babbling brook and entered a garden fantasy of ivy topiary figures, a swinging bunny and a scavenger hunt for perennials with animal names such as bear's breeches, bee balm, lamb's ears and foxglove. The exhibition was a joint effort of the Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation Department and the City of Ypsilanti. Photos by Bob Kalmbach
