Fall in Brookside Gardens

I was going to see "Curse of the Wererabbit" at AFI with Leslie and Mike, so we made a day of it at Brookside Gardens. I have to say I was pretty impressed with it. Gorgeous gorgeous day!

The light was amazing...

The pond was serene, even with the loads of visitors...

Leslie was obsessed with the cushy looking mums...

Which she insisted could be like a stool...

The colors were also amazing...
