The Gardens

Having been raised a Garden Gnome (even though I’m actually an Elf) I have a deep appreciation for all gardens.

I no longer live in the Garden but I’m lucky enough to have an arboretum near my home.  It has indigenous plants as well as specialized gardens like the Japanese Buddha Garden.

The colors have been magnificent.  Even in the decline of the season there is something majestic about the trees.

They are about to begin putting together the Christmas Train Display.  I got to get a sneak preview of the buildings they are going to use this year.

I can’t wait for the complete display in December.  The way the days are fading into one another I fear it will be December in a blink of an elf’s eye 😉



Hi my name is Bjorn Maelstrom. This blog follows my many adventures. I've been to 16 different states since coming to America. After I suffered two fractured arms I've had to slow down a big but my friends Mick, Alistair, Chris, Hazel, Frank and a bunch of others have graciously said they would continue my adventures. Not that I'm going away completely. Sometimes we travel together sometimes separately but no matter where we go it's always a good time.
