PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Summer’s over, but lucky for you, there’s lots to do this autumn at gardens and arboretums all around us.

Events range from exhibits of extreme pumpkin carving, to crafts for kids like pumpkin painting, to moonlit walks and nature talks; creating wreaths from apples or leaves, or making a Thanksgiving centerpiece.

Check out the chrysanthemum spectacular at Longwood Gardens; what’s growing in the Trial Garden at Mt. Cuba, hayrides at the Hagley Museum – plus scarecrows, craft shows, and the constantly changing autumn leaves on the trees in some of the prettiest places on Earth.

To keep track of it all – and so you don’t miss what you want to do most – download Greater Philadelphia Gardens Guide to Fall Fun with details of what’s happening where and when. That way, when you have visitors coming or the kids are bored or you’re looking for a fun way to spend time outside on an autumn day, you’ll have plenty to pick from.
