Fall At Franklin Park Conservatory

I spent a morning this week wandering around Franklin Park Conservatory. They are ready for fall – including their annual Pumpkins Aglow event which takes place evenings this month.

It was a gorgeous, unseasonably warm blue sky day and was perfect for examining pumpkin displays, fall mums and even their outdoor model railroad collection.

Here are a few pictures from this magnificent day. There are a handful of displays with skeletons in action.

Then there are the trains in a magnificent outdoor model railroad that celebrates miniatures, trains and nature.

Are there any Thomas fans in the house? They even have a Thomas engine for the littles to enjoy.

And a black cat or two mixed in for good measure.

But my favorite things here are the pumpkin houses. This one is especially nice.

I doubt I make it back for Pumpkins Aglow this season but would encourage you to go check it out! Get your information here.

Welcome Fall!

Fall officially begins today and I am ready. It’s the best season, if you ask me. Not only is it beautiful and blessedly cooler, there are tons of things to do in the fall.

My calendar is already filling up for the month and I’m happy to see it so busy. After all, it won’t be long before the snow blows and drives us all indoors.

Meanwhile, it’s still warm here, too warm for the jackets, hats, boots and sweaters that I love to wear. So all I can do is open my closet and admire my pretty boots and dream of the day there’s enough of a chill in the air to wear my cute jackets!

What’s on your fall bucket list? My October will be busy but there’s always room for more fun and adventure!
