It was a beautiful, crisp fall day to stroll through the gardens and admire the brilliant autumnal colors on the trees: a sunny, clear yellow Ginkgo, a brilliant, bright red Bloodleaf Japanese Maple and a striking reddish orange Kousa Dogwood next to the gazebo. Visit soon before this gorgeous fall display is just a memory.
