I think I've taken pictures of every bush, tree and plant - that grows there. So many residents have beautiful flowers and my amateur photography efforts have given me great enjoyment. Now I'll even have a chance to renew my enjoyment of more relaxation and views of the autumn colors and local flowers and keep on snapping when I can. I have missed Autumn's full splendor in the mountains for the past 25 years!
Yesterday we visited our daughter, who lives nearby across town. She has the greenest thumb of anyone I know. I took 38 pictures in 1/2 hour as she was heading out to an appointment. Her garden is exceptionally beautiful and not tightly structured. She has varieties of flowers plus many vegetables that are thriving and are sure having a lot of full and healthy growth there! Even her koi came to the top of the small backyard pond to say hello. She can name every one of her plants and even has a special herb garden. I will go back to catch more blooms, especially for one of my favorites, Zinnias. Pop always had many of those around the house when I was growing up. Some plants are finished blooming but there are many more spectacular varieties of lilies to come!
