“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” – Albert Camus

On a beautiful Sunday morning in early November, members of BBG’s President’s Circle gathered on the Osborne Garden’s inviting Fawcett Terrace for hot cider, fresh pastries, and a stroll around the nearby grounds to take in the autumn foliage. Garden President Scot Medbury, arborist Chris Roddick, and curator of the Osborne Garden and Lilac Collection, Daniel Ryniec, took turns speaking about the changes BBG’s flora undergoes as fall gets underway, and how the Horticulture and Maintenance staff care for the gardens during this transitional time. Along our walk, they pointed out plants of particular interest during the autumn season, and answered our questions about fall gardening at home. We also learned from experience that crabapples are edible, but just barely!

Thanks to all who started this weekend morning off with a visit to BBG. Enjoy the fall!

April Greene is the Major Gifts and Special Events associate.
