Fall Colors are just about here!!!!

Yes, Pine Mountain is where you will find the roadsides bursting with color and you really don’t want to miss the only Cascading Mums in the world at Callaway Gardens. These special Mums have been cultivated by the Expert horticulturists and will be in full bloom during the last two weeks of October and the first week or so in November. Given the economy, this is a great way to relax and unwind for only a few bucks…

Callaway Gardens does have the gorgeous cascading mums this time of year, but my personal favorite is the Day Butterfly Center. This time of year, the Blue Morpho butterflies are coming out of their coccoons and displaying the magnificent colors that make them so unique in the insect world. Dull and brown on the outsides of their wings, they appear to be an average, although large, moth… but don’t be fooled by their outer appearance! When they alight on a plant or fixture, they spread their wings to display a stunning electric blue wingspan. Words just can’t describe the vivacity of the color.

Also, this time of year is ideal for hiking the Pine Mountain Trail, as the changing colors and brisk breezes are only part of the breathtaking experience. Pack a picnic lunch, chill a bottle of wine, and take off on your own expedition across some of Georgia’s most beautiful scenery….. it is my very favorite way to spend a lovely autumn day!
