One of our favorite spots to visit, in any season, is Cox Arboretum, part of the Dayton, Ohio Metro Parks system.
But I do so love to visit in the Fall when the air feels crisp and the sky is clear.
Each year, in late September, the Kettering Hospital Garlic Festival is held on the Arboretum's grounds. It's always a fun way to spend a day. The air is heavy with the wonderful smells of garlic cooking in oh so many ways. There are craft booths filled with all manner of treasures, children's activities and, of course, the park is the perfect place to walk and enjoy nature. Bill, Grace, Grace's buddy Erin and I spent a few sweet hours here, walking, nibbling, people watching and listening to some great bands. The perfect way to say goodbye to September and hello to Autumn.Grace and Erin

The fruits of the seasonFriends The beauty of this wonderful park...
I hope your weekend was a lovely one. I wish each one of you a week filled with smiles, fulfillment, family, friends and sweet Autumn delights!
