The last rays of fall have fallen.......

This fall I went to Hoyt Arboretum for the first time, which is only about 20 minutes away. Hoyt Arboretum is a 187 acre "living museum of trees and plants from all over the world." It has 21 trails covering 12 miles and has thousands of species of plants and trees all nicely labeled for the botanically curious.
I went there on a perfectly sunny fall day...

This was a very interesting tree apparently already decorated for Christmas...

I was home at the ranch (Texas) for Thanksgiving and enjoyed lounging by the fire, which was kept brightly burning by my wonderful Pa. It was great to have no responsibilities and to spend even a little time with the darling parents. Wintery grayness and rains have now set in. It even snowed today for a few minutes while I was rounding at the hospital: big fluffy flakes, but they did not last. Our Christmas lights are already up to give a cheerful glow in the appartment and as always when I have spare time I am sitting on my fluffy couch under a pile of fluffy blankets.
Happy Sabbath to all!
