Fall display

The hospital where I work has some very pretty gardens scattered about the campus, and one of them is close by the Emergency Department. Each autumn, there are various displays organized to mark the coming of Fall. Here is one of them, complete with scarecrow, cornstalks and a pumpkin. Both the pumpkin and the cornstalks are typical of New England during the autumn, and you can even buy them at roadside farmstands.

The cupola behind the display is from one of the hospital’s buildings, dating from the 1890s, and forms the centre of a walk of inscribed bricks. One of these bricks is dedicated to my parents.
