Garden Blogger Fall Color Project: Campus Colors

One of the greatest places to find fall color is on the campuses of our country's learning institutions. Each of these beacons of knowledge are aesthetically landscaped to entice new students to come and to give the students and faculty that attend a sense of nature to enhance their education. This idea is alive at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania. At the Scott Arboretum blog Becky shows us the reds and oranges of maples, golden amsonias, and pathways of fall color beneath tall tulip poplar trees. The outdoor amphitheater would be a wonderful place to have a class, although I might pay more attention to the trees and the bounty of fall color than to the professor!
