Enter the Autumn Season

007Yesterday I paid a visit to Lakewold Gardens, located in Lakewood, Washington, another little paradise that I had visited for my very first time during this past spring season. I had promised myself that I would return in the fall, to take in the leaf colors. I had been waiting all month for the rains to settle down, and yesterday was the day for me to finally visit the gardens.  Below are images from the garden, consisting of many colors, lighting, and textures. Enjoy!

The gardens are only open Friday and Saturday this month. They will then be closed for renovations for the rest of the year, although the garden shop will be open for holiday shopping.
