Another sweaty season is upon us, but somehow, we don't mind the heat too much when surrounded by all the natural beauty the arboretum has to offer. And in keeping with summer tradition, visitors who brave the heat can explore four gorgeous Alice's Adventures in Wonderland-themed topiary houses that depict the tales of Alice, the Chesire Cat, the Mad Hatter, and the White Rabbit. On certain days, some poor souls will be dressed up in costume to help bring these magical stories to life, and other nights offer sundown concerts and picnicking  opportunities.
