This is the time of year I love the most - the brisk air, the falling leaves, colorful trees, and sunny skies!
There are many wonderful scenic routes to drive around our area to take in the glorious Fall colors. One of these destinations is Olana, the historic estate and home built by Frederick Church, who was one of the Hudson River painters of the turn of the previous century.
I recently enjoyed an afternoon up at Olana (located in the town of Hudson) when I delivered lunches to our group of painters taking a workshop with Hudson River Valley Art Workshops.
The views were tremendous - you could see the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains.
The house is pretty stunning, too!
One of my favorite places to walk at Olana is their perennial garden located on a lower slope near the house.
It seems like there is always something blooming.
And they have interesting varieties of flowers.
