Karen, how nice of you to share your sincere enthusiasm for some of your favorite plants. I humbly admit that I was not aware of the fall virtue of the old fashioned bridal wreathe spirea...with it's uplifted tapered branches all aglow,it's truly stunning. You're a very effective plant evangelist since you have made a believer out of me!
I love the composition of your first photo, Karen! That grass is killer in front of the Spirea. Beautiful pictures of some beautiful plants!
Wow! Beautiful colors on your headline picture!
I appreciate the 2-season photos. So often sites/books show only 1 season and you gotta guess at the other. thanks.
I have a hedge of Prunus glandulosa 'flowering almond' has a similar look, cept the branches are covered in floweres and are, welll, spikey.
again, thanks. may check out my local spireas here in Central Cal.
I grew up with the bridalwreath spireas around the apartment complex where I lived and after many years of searching my local market found it just 2 years ago. They had several other varieties but not the bridalwreath. Brings back a lot of childhood memories.
Love your pictures today as much as yesterday's - thank you for sharing.
Great fall color. I enjoyed yesterday's dry stream bed and now this treat. I like the bottom photo in the first row, the sky really makes it. Thank you, Karen.
This morning when going out to the barn to feed Newt it looked like Newt is pregnant or maybe getting fed too well. So before winter sets in it'd be best to get Newt to the Vet. I phoned and they said to bring Newt in. I got my Havahart trap set up in the barn with a small can of Fancy Feast with shrimp as bait. I returned an hour later and Newt was trapped. Newt is at the Vet now. The Vet and all the staff but someone to answer the phone was out to lunch. I still don't know if Newt is a boy or a girl. Now you all know as much as I do, next chapter soon.
Newt is a boy! Whew, no kittens... I was getting worried. The Vet said Newt is about 5-7 years old and is in very good shape except for ear mites and an ear infection. The Vet said Newt is not feral, he was probably discarded and was very scared of people. But they were able to handle him with no problem, didn't even need the gloves. All his blood work was clean, no diseases. He now has all his shots and won't need boosters until next year. I left him at the Vet and they will try to fit him in for neutering tomorrow morning, if not Monday. Then they will board him for a day or two before I bring him home. I still need to decide if I'll put him back in his barn or bring him in my house, just not sure how that will work with the five... I have time to mull it over. Was cold here and I've been fighting bronchitis for two weeks now.
