Last week I made a trip into New York City to visit my blogging partner daughter Andrea. It was a short trip filled with lots of shopping and wonderful food. I had hoped to be showing you some beautiful pictures from the Botanical Garden in Brooklyn. It was a beautiful sunny day and I was ready with my camera, but to my total dismay it was closed!!!! I forgot most of the museum and apparently gardens are closed on Mondays. Very disappointing…. So instead I have the last shots of the beautiful fall foliage from northern Michigan.
I was driving by myself and pulled off the road to snap these photos. To the left was the deep reds and oranges of the trees and the right was this amazing stone foundation barn.
The leaves are falling at a fast rate now and within the week most of the leaves will be down. In contrast NYC was still experiencing warm weather in the 70's, their flowers were still blooming and leaves not yet turning on all the trees. As I pressed my nose through the locked gate at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens I could see walk ways leading to beautiful late season gardens. I guess that just means another trip to New York in the spring and a visit to the gardens but not on a Monday!!! Hope you are enjoying the last days for fall.
