Autumn in New England   Leave a comment

autumnWe usually only get great color for a few days before a windy rain storm brings all the leaves down.  Here’s a great shot of all the different colors – the burgundy Japanese maple (which will get more brilliant in Nov), the orange Red Sunset Maple (next to light post),  the red kousa dogwood in the foreground, the yellow hostas, the yellow threadleaf japanese maples up by the house, the yellow magnolia near the white car and the green lawn.  And of course we’re expecting that rainstorm tonight!

villa d este 1

I took a trip to Italy and visited Villa d’Este in Tivoli outside of Rome.  The garden is astounding, this is a photo of the Hundred Fountains, but there are more fountains all over the garden.  The water keeps the garden cool on even the hottest summer day.  If you are ever in Rome, I highly recommend a day trip to Villa d’Este.<\font>
