Cedar Valley Arboretum & Botanic Gardens

Indian Summer

with 2 comments

It’s shaping up to be another beautiful week at the Arboretum.  Even with many of the annuals pulled and trees/perennials tucked in for the winter, there is still plenty of color in the gardens.  I encourage you to visit the Arboretum soon to see for yourself.

To give you a taste of what you might see, I took some photos this morning while I was walking the grounds.  To view my photos,  please visit http://cedarvalleyarboretumphotos.shutterfly.com and click on the “2010 October” album under the “Pictures and Videos” tab.  This is a share site that you can visit to see a whole collection of great photos of the Arboretum (because posting one photo is sometimes just not enough!).  This will be a new way for me to share multiple photos with you, so please let me know what you think!     

See you in the gardens.

PS:  What is an Indian summer?  According to Wikipedia.com, Indian summers are characterized as “a period of sunny, warm weather, after the leaves have turned following an onset of frost, but before the first snowfall.”  Now you know!
