Or how this stone plaque is now so nicely framed by the Boston Ivy; it used to just hang on a bare fence.
I notice how the plants in the courtyard are now flowing into each other, and how the Honeysuckle is on its way to being a venerable old vine, twisting around the post.
I'm still putting my new camera through its paces, and have learned a few things; I love how I can capture so much of the garden in one simple frame.
Nandina 'Firepower' is lovely in the afternoon light. The Isotoma groundcover is perking up after the recent rains.
Fuchsia thymifolia is a lovely little shrub, I've had this in a pot for several years. Yes, those flowers are extremely tiny!
I'm not a big fan of boxwood, except for this variegated variety. I love how it glows, in its tidy way, where I dot it through the garden.
Begonia richmondiensis is SUCH a sucker for a close-up; please click on this one to see the larger version, but only if you love a shot of iridescent pink on a Monday!
The only thing cooler than Manihot leaves are Manihot leaves on a bamboo-dappled October afternoon.
Moonlight Yellow Nasturtiums are one of those plants that you will always find in my garden. I give it some suggestions, but it really decides where it wants to be...
Like in the middle of the carpet roses!
Fig leaves! That's it, just Fig leaves!
Another Nandina shot; I love the subtle, curling contours of the leaves as well as the color.
