Celebrating Autumn


The trees are amazing this time of year in Central PA so we thought we would make good use of our membership to Hershey Gardens and enjoy the autmn splendor.


a magnificent Japanese Maple below.

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot

Great pics! I'm so jealous. It looks like winter here- all of the trees are leafless and even the leaves on the ground are dark brown:(

Autumn is just incredible. Your photos are stunning! The Oregon Garden is only about 40 minutes away from me and I've never thought to visit during the changing of leaves...that must be remedied next year.

How gorgeous! I love that Japanese Maple - ours is still quite little and it's lost its beautiful leaves for the season. I'm entranced by those purple berries! On all our walks, I haven't seen those before. So pretty! Theresa
