Today at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum – 12/7/22

Misty and foggy at the Arboretum today, but the grounds have been decorated for the holidays, which greatly contributed towards lifting my spirits. Red and green gnomes and some festive tuteurs line the entrance walk to the Haggerty Education Center. A lovely wreath created by the Home Garden Club of Morristown decorates the Carriage House doors, and a kissing ball hangs in front of the Mansion.

The Friends decorated a tree for the Morris County Park Commission’s Festival of Trees. We named our tree Woodland Friends and it’s decorated with birds, flowers, forest creatures, feathers, origami stars and a large owl as a tree topper surveying his domain! Here’s a photo, but please note that our tree can be much better appreciated in person! 

Register to attend the Festival of Trees through the Morris County Park Commission at 973 326-7601.
