Beautiful Pinus strobus 'Pendula' at Butler University

I was on campus for a meeting at Butler University today and I was a little early so I thought I would take a stroll and check out the formal gardens and other plants on campus. The landscaping overall was beautiful, but I had heard plenty about the formal gardens so I wanted to check them out especially.

My favorite was the belltower tucked along the edge of the woods on a hill overlooking a pond, and 3 absolutely gorgeous shaggy weeping white pine trees [Pinus strobus 'Pendula'] out in front of their HRC building.

Had to crank the brightness on this photo to make up for the shade and backlight

The bell tower was really cool, and it was right by the pond in the woods near the observatory (the only other building on campus I've been inside).
