Foray Into Fall

Did you attend Fall Harvest Festival 2009?  WOW – what a weekend!  Perfect weather, delicious food, wonderful music and entertainment, unique market vendors and the funnest children’s activities and crafts – what more could a festival ask for?  THANK YOU to all the Arboretum volunteers and festival-goers that help make the weekend such a success!  It was the perfect way to celebrate autumn.

And if you did not attend this year, make sure to do so in 2010!

 

Picture 137Another reason to celebrate autumn – look at that beautiful color!  Growing as an annual in the Display Gardens, Rudbeckia hirta ‘Cherokee Sunset’ has flowers similar to a sunflower (at least I think so!) but is actually in the black-eyed susan family.  The double and semi-double flowers can vary in color from yellow, orange, red and bronze with some bi-color and are known to reseed from year to year.

 

See you in the gardens.
