An explosion of petals everywhere I look!
How I love this time of year ....
purple-leaved plum in the parking lot at the post office
variegated dogwood, 'Blue Muffin' viburnum, 'Midnight Masquerade' clematis, and a
spritely pink volunteer aquilegia in the front garden
a rose and her bud in the back garden
street rose gone wild behind the grocery store in Friday Harbor
and my favorite petal of all, snoozy in the back of the car,
riding with her new cotinus bush ['Royal Purple' all a'bloom]
and baskets from the Thrift
for the new studio digs ...
More on that wonderful story in the coming month.
to all my pals in the northern hemisphere
(and a beautiful autumn to you southerlies)
