Just me and nature at Winterthur in October

meadowNeeding to get out and walk the other day, I decided to take advantage of a lovely warm October day midweek, when I knew there would not beforest many visitors at Winterthur Museum and Gardens.

Very few trees had yet felt the urge to show fall colors, but the seasonal changes were subtle, but present. The lavender was going lavendercrazy on a bank, while the deep forest of the tall trees near the March bank were Dawn redwoodappropriately mysterious.

The dawn redwoods had chandeliers of budding cones (I think) hanging down, their bright panicles defying my lens, while the Sargent cherry tree majestically shed its leaves next to the Sargent cherrymeadow.

But I was not totally alone, with a squad of squirrels busily gathering winter provisions, and up near the mansion, koi staring up from their ponds, mouthing silent greetings.

Miss the leaves in Pennsylvania this time of year.  Grow up back there and the fall was always special.

Will-Still not looking enough like fall to me, but who knows-we may get a big freeze soon and all this will be gone!

This weather is crazy, making the most for those lovely walks, but it is supposed to turn tomorrow and over this weekend, so you may see some changes in the next few days.

Isn't it the scouts' motto (I never was one) "Be prepared," but I am ready!
