Today I made a quick visit to our Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Of course, it is autumn, with such decorations every where... even the gate house.
In the last 20 years things have change a lot, going from a more academic true arboretum to one that is more general public oriented to attract more visitors and members (and more income). So one of the newer instigations is a yearly theme throughout the arboretum grounds. This season, it is "roots" and there are many sculptures in various parts of the acreage. A sampling:
Last year the theme was willow houses, and there were all different kinds. This one near the entrance, they decided to leave up another year.
