Boxerwood Fall Family Festival

This was our third year attending the Boxerwood Fall Family Festival. There are always crafts, cider pressing and drinking, and fresh out of the fryer cinnamon and sugar doughnuts. That alone is celebration enough to herald in this wonderful season. But the Spectacle is really the highlight of the festival. This year the performance was entitled "The Bones of Boxerwood" and included dancing trilobites and ammonites as well as dancing trees, crows and the gigantic Dr. Munger. ( Dr. Munger is the man who planted over 7,000 trees to transform farmland into this amazing arboretum which Boxerwood is today). All this set to beautiful music, bits of poetry, and a touching narration by K.B. the current caretaker of Boxerwood.

Ella was so sweet to treat us all to Asian Pears.

By the look of this picture you wouldn't think she liked it, but I think it was me taking a picture that she was making a face at.
