Jeff Calton has a way with words when describing the garden encore. Because I just couldn't bring my self to edit down the 17 photos he sent, I'm going to share his Japanese Maple shots with you today. More to come from the farewell tour soon!
"Ok, I think it is the end of the 2015 growing season but I have had more farewell tours than Cher. We have enjoyed a long lasting and mild fall this year which has given the garden time to "show her stuff" before the big sleep. Winter , for me, is the time to evaluate and enjoy the bones of the garden. Plant structure, bark patterns, branching silhouettes so look out because I always have a camera with me."
