Botanical Gardens

Everyday, twice a day for about two months, Jude and I have been walking through the Leipzig Botanical Gardens. It closed November 1st for the season (although the gates were open today) and doesn’t reopen until the beginning of March. It really¬†was a beautiful way to start the day. Jude and I walked along the different paths and explored a new section everyday. We always ended with his favorite part of the gardens, “up the hill and down the stairs and by the pond and then around”.

I have loved watching the various gardens transition into fall. These first three photos are of the Apothecary Gardens in full summer bloom. These were taking in August.

The yellow brick wall surrounds the garden. I walk several times a day down this path.

Transitioning into fall. The tree in the photo has been around for a long time and for some reason it is dying. The cables are there to make sure that when it does fall it doesn’t crush the surrounding gardens.

Yet another path and the season is changing.

We took a photo of our feet in the leaves. Cause leaves and fall and because we wanted too.

This is the other side of the Apothecary garden. It’s fall. Winter’s coming. I’m just thankfully we’ll be here in March to see it all come back to life.
