Aracauria araucana  Monkey Puzzle tree slowly but surely

Make yourself comfortable, Jeff is back with a lovely view of the changing seasons in his garden!

"It is supposed to freeze this weekend so the face of the garden will change immensely. Took advantage of a beautiful fall evening to walkabout and enjoy the end of summer color.  I really do enjoy the changing of the seasons but I also think that 2 or 3 weeks of winter is plenty."
