Glorious fall colors have arrived in the Root River Valley in South East Minnesota. Plan a mid-week getaway at the Hillcrest Hide-Away B&B in Lanesboro to enjoy the collage of fall colors. Read on to learn more.
The colorful fall colors are not limited to the hardwood forests that surround us. A wet summer has extended the summer flower gardening season. Our hibiscus bushes are typically finished blooming by now. However this year they will continue to blossom until frost.
Due to the arrival of cool nights, fall garden flowers are beginning to bloom. Perennial mums I planted last year have formed mounds that are nearly three feet in diameter! They are ready to burst into bloom with hundreds of blossoms.
These aster plants are in their second year and they have thrived in our wet summer. My diligent watering during dry spells has really paid off.
Soybean and corn harvest is well under way around us. The rolling countryside with alternating ribbons of green alfalfa and harvested corn rows adds to the patchwork quilt of fall foliage that surround us.
Now is the time to plan your fall foliage getaway. South East Minnesota is filled with rolling hills covered with hardwood forests bursting with color. Visit us during the
week to avoid the crowds.
