Fall Tidings

Traveling hither and yon today, I got to appreciate the gorgeous fall foliage stretching all the way from Southold to the Northwest Woods. Truly beautiful sights.

In the spirit of the gorgeous autumn day, here are three things that are of interest this particular moment in time.

LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton is hosting a Fall Foliage Garden Walk on Saturday, November 5, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. What a wonderful way to experience the seasonal changes!

Join Alex Feleppa, LongHouse Reserve’s horticulturist and certified arborist, for the insightful tour of the foliage, fruit, and flowers that provide another wonderful season of interest at LongHouse. From coral bark maples to Japanese beautyberries, Alex will identify and demystify the sensational fall trees and shrubs you have long been curious about. Stroll the garden, be inspired, and take home the knowledge to better your own landscape.  Be sure to dress appropriately and wear comfortable shoes for walking.

The Montauk Library is offering up a fine-free November, as long as you bring in some non-perishable food donations. Here’s an idea–bring in something whether you’ve got an overdue book or not. Every little bit counts! All collected food will be donated to the Montauk Food Pantry. It’s called “The Hollows Beacon

And lastly, a bit of something autumnally attractive to feast your eyes upon. Art Donovan, who happens to be celebrating a birthday today, has a cool new lighting fixture that is just perfect for right now. It’s called “The Hollows Beacon” and it hangs outdoors as a lantern. Neato.
