In the words of Joyce Giraud: "Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year because it reminds us to give thanks and to count our blessings. Suddenly, so many things become so little when we realize how blessed and lucky we are."
Best wishes from the Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum for a wonderful holiday in the company of family and friends.
Chilly, rainy and windy at the Arboretum today, but even so, there was beauty to be found. Many white berries adorn the branches of Callicarpa japonica cv. Leucocarpa (White fruited Beautyberry) on a shrub in the upper parking lot. The many bright red berries on Ilex verticillata 'Red Sprite" (Winterberry Holly cultivar) are certainly a welcome sight on a cloudy, dreary day. And the purple berries of Callicarpa dichotoma "Issai" (Purple Beautyberry cultivar) are an unexpected and welcome sight.
