The Daegu arboretum featured a chrysanthemum festival that I went to twice! I went with some friends on a Sunday, and the following Wednesday my school took a teacher's outing there. I won't complain about two trips in one week. It's nice to experience the fresh air and atmosphere of the festival. During the festival they have large living flower sculptures of animals, buildings, and even a dragon. The pathway is lined with potted plants and walls of flower buds. The normally quiet arboretum is crowded with people viewing the flowers and fall foliage. I went at the beginning of the festival, so most of the flower sculptures were packed with buds only just starting to bloom. Later on I'm sure they were bursting with flowers...
