Today marks the first day of fall and it definitely feels like fall in Chicago. There is a pleasant chill in the air, the trees are beginning to change and the fall gardens have been planted at Chicago Botanic Garden. We know fall has arrived when the mums, asters, cabbages, kale, and colorful grasses begin to replace the summer flower gardens. I look forward to capturing the colors, patterns and textures of the season in the coming weeks. The mum display in the Crescent Garden is particularly colorful this year.
