Fall is a wonderful time to get out and enjoy the garden. The weather and the progression of colors together is an unbeatable combination. It's fun to get out and see the new changes that take place every day. There is always something new to see. In addition to seeing the changes in color every day, its also a great time to observe new birds and even the monarch butterflies, as they make their great migration. Here is a photo of a monarch butterfly who found our Ginkgo biloba 'Tubiformis' a great place to rest overnight. We live on the N. coast of lake Erie, so it's amazing to think this little butterfly made it across the lake (a 57 mile flight over open water), down from Canada, and decided to rest on our Ginkgo overnight. The picture was taken in morning sun, as the Monarch warms their flight muscles in preparation to continue the journey SW to Mexico. It's very humbling to think what we would need to make such a journey and the monarch makes it on a wing and a prayer. Truly remarkable!
