We ran across this unusual shrub, at least unusual to me. It had lavender/purple berries and was very striking. (You can see it better by double-clicking on the photo to enlarge it.) We found out that it is called 'beauty bush' and with good reason. Here is another little viewing house that we climbed to...Nancy is in the top but you can barely see her smiling.
Fall color with delphiniums...a wonderful combination!
Just a few more dahlia's... they were so incredible!
Some of these were so perfectly formed they hardly looked real...and the colors were so vivid. This little house sat behind the dahlia garden, all covered in ivy turned an autumn red. There is an organ housed in there, and every once in a while a family member gives a concert. That would really be a wonderful event to see.
