I can't believe I am saying this, but it's a bit chilly here. Fall has definitely arrived in the midwest. My favorite seasons are spring and fall (Yes, we have 4 different and distinct seasons here in my neck of the woods!) because of the moderate temperatures. I am definitely not a hot weather loving kind of girl! We're down to the 60's here this whole week. But it's not officially Indian Summer because we haven't had a freeze yet. The air is crisp and cool, but good old Mr. Sunshine is showing his face so that helps take some of the chill out of the air.
Thought I would share some more photos from our trip to the Botanic Gardens a couple weeks ago. The various colors and textures were so rich and beautiful.
The photo below looks like my backyard after raking up leaves, but the leaves are still attached to this low-growing plant. Simply gorgeous!
I love the softness of these grasses. . . .they remind me of feathers!
Won't this planting of mums surrounding the tree look gorgeous when they bloom? The buds are just ready to burst open! I wonder what color they will be?
