Edsel & Eleanor Ford House
Fall in Michigan has always been my favorite season. The temperature becomes bearable, sweaters and boots can be dragged out of storage, the leaves change to a vibrant red, and the smell of autumn lingers in the air. I recently had the opportunity to walk around the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House and gardens to experience the beauty of the grounds.
What started off as a promise of a gorgeous sunset, quickly was overtaken by autumn rain clouds, but the grounds still did not disappoint. The rose garden, designed by Jens Jensen for Eleanor Ford, was still in bloom with beautiful pastel roses. Bird Island’s paths were covered in beautiful red and orange leaves from the almost century old trees.
It was a great experience, and I can’t wait to return in the winter to see the changes to the grounds under a blanket of snow.
