Autumn at Lakewold Gardens

October 7, 2011

Patch of tiny cyclamen on the forest floor, Lakewold Gardens

The visual rewards of gardens may be less obvious in fall or winter, but they are still worthy of a visit.  I returned to the Lakewold Gardens this past weekend to see what it had to offer on a gray, damp autumn day.  Here are some photos:

Green canopy of dappled leaves

Cyclamen encircling an old tree

Anemone in bloom

A variation of pale maple leaves

Looking up yielded some of the best sights in the garden

We are seeing a second bloom of crocuses this year (one in spring and again this fall)
