One more day to enjoy “autummer” (now until it freezes)

November 4, 2008

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect stretch of late-fall weather than the one we’re just coming off, so I heartily encourage all those who voted this morning to get out and enjoy the nice day. (No lines at my polling place at 8:30 a.m.; hope the rest of you were equally lucky!) We’ve been making the rounds of all our favorite haunts — the rapids in Forest Park, the pond at Benton Park — to see how they’re changing with the seasons, but we haven’t yet made it by Tower Grove Park’s water lilies. We need to do it soon, though, as this article about the ponds’ recent rehab explains: One hard frost and it’s over for this year’s lily-viewing. If you’d like to find out when the nighttime lights will be on, allowing visitors a good view of the lilies’ nocturnal blooms, call the park office at 314.771.4454.
