A couple days after Hurricane Matthew my travels began. First with a two week trip to Germany to visit my mother. I enjoyed the beginning of Autumn with the crisp air and beautiful colors in her garden
The purple-leaf plum is a mass of pink flowers in spring, loaded with small sweet fruit in late summer and beautiful red in fall.
Asters with their cheerful flowers are much loved by bees and butterflies
Dogwood, one of her favorite shrubs, they have beautiful fall color and bright red stems in winter.
Blue Juniper, the blue silver color is stunning
Daisies with the red flowering stonecrop (sedum) in the background.
Her Hydrangea is huge, 4 ft high and wide
