Final Fall Foliage

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

The first two were taken in front of Elderly Instruments, in Old Town Lansing. It’s called a smoke tree, and it was equally pretty this spring.

The next photo was taken at Turner-Dodge mansion, also in Old Town. It’s a Gingko tree. I adore these trees. In summer they have perfect green leaves, and in fall they turn solid yellow.

It is a magical place, I’m not sure why I typically go to Mt. Hope Cemetery across the street rather than the Arboretum. I think I just like old cemeteries a lot, and somehow that is where more fall color happens as well.
