Columbus – September 2018 – Fall at the Botanical Garden

With an annual membership at the Franklin Park Conservatory we now stop by for the various seasonal exhibits they present. The current one is for fall.

The topiary’s are still being displayed, this time with ornamental brassica (aka – cabbage and kale). Who knew cabbage and kale were used as landscaping?

A 10′ high ‘Pumpkin House’ is featured in the Children’s Garden.

Good thing some gourds have handles to hang them by.

In addition to the traditional orange pumpkin, they have white ones.

They seem to have cornered the market in pumpkins, but they add a nice touch and different coloring for the fall display. Soon the leaves will change adding even more color  before winter sets in and turns everything brown.

Enjoy it while we can.
