Arboretum Wandering

Fall continues to be about as magnificent as could be here. The days are in the upper 60's to low 70's (F) while the nights are in the upper 30's. That combination makes for active days and good sleeping (with the window open, naturally). And the colors just keep entertaining anyone who simply looks around.


Most of the flowers in the ground are giving their last hurrah, and potted plants last only if brought into shelter overnight. It is minimal work and it keeps the goodness going for another week or so.


Today Reena and I took a detour and had a short walk in the Arboretum. It was interesting - some of the trees were already bare while others, particularly the ornamental maples, had not really even started to turn. A hard frost will do it, but then the party is over quickly. The current forecast says we have about another week of this great weather, so we get a nice long show.

Last Gasp

There are a double handful more photographs from today, and you can view them in this SLIDE SHOW if you so desire.
