Some of you asked to see “my” Copper Beech in her Autumn splendor. Her leaves are exhibiting their coppery rust, which makes it a striking companion to what I believe is an aspen. Copper and gold; such amazing tones in nature. Even in the rain – especially in the rain – the performance is spectacular this year. Yet again, I was exploring the Morton Arboretum on Wednesday. The path above was leading to the glass-blowing pumpkin extravaganza going on through the weekend. If you are in the area, you really should drop in to see the Glass Pumpkin Patch at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, and then absorb all the fall colors.
Leaf Peepers! That’s what we become in the fall. Leaf Peepers!
The path below wanders amid an arbor rainbow. I felt a bit like Dorothy on the Yellow Brick Road.
It doesn’t matter where paths wander in our midwestern fall ; just that we take the time to walk them, as this pair did in the Autumn mist.
