A Walk to Native Flora with Susan

Just getting close to the Native Flora Garden right now, you know you are in for a treat. The Native Flora is always a pretty cool spot, but in autumn it's downright dazzling.

Nearby is a Witchhazel in bloom. Susan noticed one blooming in Prospect Park this weekend, two weeks earlier than I saw it blooming last year.

There's that Sumac, which is an incredible greeting as you enter the gate.

And on and on it goes. We walked the different paths of the garden, where there was always some spectacular fall color to see just around the bend.

I'll miss these walks through Brooklyn Botanic's grounds and through Native Flora, whether studying for ID tests or getting ideas for our projects. Just watching the grounds change daily and through the seasons has been one of the highlights of my year.
