Fall 2012: Burgundy Galore!

The Berry Prairie has been back in business for about three weeks now.  It's incredible how hardy these plants are!  In fact, now that fall is here and leaves are turning, the grasses are finishing flowering, everything is going into senescence, you can't even tell it underwent a major overhaul just a month ago!
