Happy Holidays - Carlson's Greenhouse

Westchester Happy New Year!

Westchester is one of those places where there is a New Years celebration to fit any mood. To prove the point, during the course of the day and evening I decided to keep a photo journal of sorts of my New Year's Eve.

White Plains is synonymous with shopping. White Plains shops in the downtown area really comes to life during the Holiday Season. Shopping and fine dining are part of the downtown White Plains lifestyle.

The Rockefeller Preserve - Sleepy Hollow NY

Walking on the wild side at the Rockefeller Preserve – Fall Foliage in Sleepy Hollow

Autumn in lower Westchester NY is a very colorful event. There is something about the color of the leaves and how it lights up the sky that I find very compelling. Forget leaf peeping in Vermont - our season peaks later, but the foliage is just as amazing.

Happy Halloween Pumpkins

Happy Halloween to all…from the land of the Headless Horseman…

The Halloween "Blaze" celebration is nothing short of amazing with 4000 pumpkins lit up on the 18th Century colonial estate.
