Root Glen In Spring

November is always a tough dreary month for Upstaters to get through. The first snows, the dead leaves and browning grasses, daylight savings time, brown and gray, anticipation of the holidays and on and on....that's why in November there is no better time to reflect on and relive those special moments and places we savor and enjoyed as residents of the Mohawk Valley in Upstate NY. That is most likely why the Thanksgiving holiday takes place when it does. So this Thanksgiving holiday reflect and be grateful for all that makes our home in the Mohawk Valley so special and good, and be thankful that God gives us this moment every year when we can take time to savor all of the bounty we have enjoyed. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

This is so true. Even with all its faults, there is no place else that I would rather live, and I am thankful to be able to live here.

. . . and Root Glen that you have pictured is one of our local treasures. It is amazing how many people are unaware of its existence.

thanks it's nice to know I'm not the only one to have stumbled on this remarkable botanical garden!
Strikeslip, I know after checking out some of your great photography you have stumbled on some of the same places I have and share a love for all the MV has to offer!
