As expected . . . no good fall colors yet! The very best part of the day was spending it with two very close friends and, as it turned out, we got in more visiting than shooting! Perfect! Since the big stuff looked rather summer weary and dusty, we focused on the smaller items. When we were told that there were lots of butterflies in the Children's Garden we were on the case! Of course, so were the children and they were in the way!
Enjoy our leisurely stroll knowing that we only made it as far as the butterflies. After that, we decided it was time for a Porter's hamburger or sandwich in Superior. For those not yet let in on our big secret . . . Porter's has the best hamburgers and fries and they have now expanded with a shaded patio. If you even get close to the place at any time you really must stop in and check out this eatery.
We asked as we left when the staff felt the best fall colors would be filling the Arboretum. We were told that at the end of the month, the weekend after Thanksgiving. And to celebrate, it will be a weekend with live music and other festivities. Great place to take out of town guests.
