|Aromatic aster - Aster* oblongifolius 'Raydon's Favorite'|
(*Symphyotrichum now, but it's hard to change)
|The deep red is Itea virginica, with red berries of Aronia arbutifolia behind. |
The edges of this shot are purposely blurry. This is an art shot.
|This calms me. It just does.|
|This calms me too, every time I walk down the path and around the curve.|
|This is the first year the bottlebrush buckeye hedge (Aesculus parviflora) |
has turned so golden yellow in fall.
|Sheffield Pink mums (Chrysanthemum, -- they didn't change this name, did they?)|
|Fragrant sumac (Rhus aromatica) has its best season in fall.|
|Another shot of the itea and the aronia berries above it.|
|The west side of the house, with the gravel sitting area behind this garden border.|
Do you recognize the little red tree on the left? The sourwood that I post about all the time.
|Another look at the west side, with bright red salvia 'Hummingbird' in front of |
the purple Raydon's Favorite asters.
|Candy lily seedpods (Pardancanda norisii. They are very similar to blackberry lilies)|
|Doublefile viburnum, (V. plicatum tomentosum, 'Shasta'). |
It's a deep rust color that just doesn't photograph well from a distance.
|Up close I can get a richer shot of the doublefile viburnum's leaves|
|Looking back at the house from the rear of the yard.|
|Rosa glauca, with no foliage left, but lots of hips. |
I transplanted this from another area a few weeks ago. I hope it survives.
| View from behind the iteas. Montauk daisies (Nipponanthemum) |
are bright and cheerful next to the garnet red itea.
Thanks for taking this tour around the yard and staying with me through this post. It's all just random things I saw, no particular meaning and no significant observations, nothing to ponder. Just my garden.
|Another art shot with a blurred frame. I like it.|
