Here we all thought the colors were "peaking" a few weeks ago and according to the official map of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (the DNR) it looks as if we would be leafless in these parts.
Well, we're having a bit of an encore performance of fall this year. Some bright blue skies brought me back out to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum to check out what color might be left. I surely was not disappointed.
The oak trees were lit up in all their splendor. What a stunning array of colors!
As I walked the 3 mile drive trail at the arboretum, I came across a group of women and one of them asked if I had a blog. She said that she did, and it was vintage umbrella. She then said, "you're artsymama!" How fun to run into a fellow blogger. I have no idea how she recognized me! So fun to meet you Jenni!
