The Friends of the Frelinghuysen Arboretum presented their annual Gingerbread Wonderland last week, wrapping up yesterday.  And what better way to spend a rainy December Sunday afternoon?  Here are just a few of the things I saw there.

The Bernardi Family got 2nd prize with this wonderful red mill.  (A much better image of this one is here:  https://www.arboretumfriends.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=5925&g2_imageViewsIndex=1.  In fact, there are many, many great images at that site; check it out.)

This splendid creation really made my mouth water:

And so did this one:

And by that time, I was getting awfully hungry.  So I went home for lunch.
