Sunny, crisp and cool, in the mid-40s with a lovely blue sky. There are signs of winter on the Arboretum grounds now, a patch of snow by the rock garden and a frozen pond near the Alpine Garden.
Now that the leaves have fallen, we can appreciate Mother Nature’s design in the intricate architecture exhibited by the branches of the Cercidiphyllum japonicum f. pendulum (Weeping Katsura Tree). This is another one of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum’s NJ Champion Trees which can be visited near the Mansion.
