More exploration at the Arboretum

Although we didn’t see flowers, we did spot what my plant app says is some sort of snowberry (or maybe an American beautyberry?) Whatever it is, the pop of color was vibrant.

I missed the best leaf color but trees like this made up for it. I should have saturated this photo to give more of a true sense of the brightness of the yellow.

I’d love to give you the name of this sculpture and I tried to figure it out from the map but to no avail. Just enjoy it for what it is and what you think it represents. I like to think of it as a wood sprite.

To give you a sense of size, here I am.

A bit more autumn color and inviting path waiting to take us farther in our explorations.

  1. Wow! That Wood Spirit was so fascinating and such piece of art. Thanks for sharing this. Anita

  2. Loved the photos. We have a plant like the first one, locals call it buckbrush. It’s berries aren’t as plump as beauty berry but still adds nice color in fall and winter.

    • Sometimes the berries of certain plants seem to be there for a very long time which makes me wonder whether they’re aren’t good to eat or if the birds a/o animals are saving them for later when there’s less other food.

    Love these photos. Glad you stood by the sculpture – I would never have guessed it was so large. Simply lovely.

  4. Gorgeous. Between the art and nature, this is such a serene, inspiring spot.

  5. What an amazing sculpture Janet!

  6. I’ve seen that plant with the purple berries once in FL but, can’t recall its name. That tree is gorgeous, and it’s nice to see you!

  7. Lovely arboretum! I bet kids like the hidey cave the sculpture makes.

    You did well to add yourself to the sculpture picture. It was far bigger than I imagined.

    Love the Sprite. Rather larger than expected.

    A pregnant wood spite. I always wondered how they procreated… 😀

  13. The autumn light was perfect for these pictures, Janet. It gave everything a lovely warm glow.
