We visited Morton Arboretum this past weekend since we’re members. I even caught a pic of a hawk in flight, albeit a crappy one as it took off when I was trying to get it sitting on a post.
The true reason for our trip, in addition to just wanting to see the trees before all the leaves fell off, and the scarecrows they always put up around the lake, is that I wanted to check out their Glass Pumpkin Patch which was really cool. We didn’t purchase any pumpkins but really enjoyed looking at them.

Below are the photo highlights from our trip to the East Coast followed by links to the photo sets. Enjoy!
Last Sunday we decided to visit the Chicago Botanic Garden to check out their new butterfly exhibit. I was quite impressed. There were more butterflies fluttering about than I’ve ever seen at other similar exhibits in various states I visited and some species I had never encountered before, but I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
