September at Villa di Maria

DSC_0123

September at Villa di Maria is one of the most beautiful months! The campus is a gorgeous mix of color. Everything is still green and lush, with the first autumn colors sneaking through; along with the colorful blooms planted last spring that are nearing their end and the abundance of butterflies that visit them, the hawks that frequent the campus, and the beautiful weather we’ve experienced, September is shaping up to be a real beauty. See what the children at Villa di Maria have been up to below.
