It’s finally fall!  The weather is turning and so are the leaves!   The ash trees by Ray Deaton Lake (a.k.a. "Audubon Lake) at the back of the Garden provide some of the best fall color at MBG.

What a great morning! It started a little earlier than usual for me, but that's the kind of stuff that builds character, right? I was here at the Garden bright and early to welcome everyone who made the 901 Day kickoff a super event! I'd skipped breakfast so I could fully enjoy an egg & chorizo breakfast taco from the Tamale Trolley , which I did... twice.
