I'm always happy to stroll through your beautiful garden, Alice. What an amazing variety of plants you have. Looking at your lovely photos gives me a real appreciation for the many different colors, shapes and textures of the various shrubs, trees and perennials that make up your garden.
Thanks for sharing the beauty with us :)

Beautiful foliages. Love the colours in Autumn/winter- even the bare branches have a charm.

Alice: THIS IS BEAUTIFUL! Very invigorating. I live in the Arizona desert where many beautiful flowers and mountains abound but THIS was just wonderful to see!

You have presented so many beautiful, interesting and for me new and unknown plants, Alice, that I have to look out in my plant encyclopedia now. But this is a nice job to do :-)!!
