the arnold arboretum






Hope you are enjoying the budding of yellows, oranges, and reds. If you are in Boston, the Arnold Arboretum is one of the best places to enjoy the colors of the season with some gentle exercise. (Just be sure to go to the visitor's center first to use the bathroom...trust me.)

As much as I love the colors of this season, I think I am even more in love with the movement...the sound of leaves raining onto the pavement...seeing them skipping along the ground on their way to some warm vacation destination...getting caught in a whirlwind of motion as a gust of wind rains leaves upon you.

One thing I do not love is the fear of walking down an oak-lined street with the sickening sound of acorns smacking the pavement all around me. I've not been hit yet (knock on oak wood).

  2. HA but getting hit with an acorn doesn't hurt very much, does it? Maybe I have an unusually unsensitive head. Gorgeous photos, as per usual!

    1. Oh! It's good to know that it doesn't hurt too much! I had imagined a bleeding scalp...
