August – Finally acquired a water feature

Enjoy Erla Richard's story of how her Independence, Oregon garden evolved over the fall! 

"These pictures do not have the brilliant beauty and wonderful photography of the recent showings on GPOD.  I look forward to this feature in my email every day. But I thought the pictures showing the progression of Fall here in the Pacific Northwest might be interesting."
