The dahlia garden at the Cutting Arboretum in Oakdale is at its peak.

Take a ride over there and view the beautiful dahlias! There are also lots of bees but don't worry.

They won't be interested in you with so many colorful flowers available!

After Labor Day

There is something so different about the air once Labor Day arrives.

The sky has less haze and more fluffy clouds.

The coolness in the air has that almost autumn feel.

It is one of the best times on Long Island!
