& who did I see ???
False Dragonhead/Obedient Plant (Physostegia virginiana) Greely, Ontario, Canada. It was a garden, a most beautiful private garden hidden from the world's eyes. The treasures the eye did see would have astounded you the viewer. Let me share some of what I did see & discover in this garden of earthly delights.
Varieties of Japanese Maples (Acer palmatum) in all different colours & forms. They are a most beautiful tree from Asia.
New England Aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae) Pink variety, Greely, Ontario, Canada. This is a rare colour variety and they are usually blue-purple in colour. I was told that this was collected from Greens Creek in Eastern Ottawa where there are so many luscious & odd varieties of flora there.
Aster Flower (Asteraceae sp) Greely, Ontario, Canada.
& lastly my most favourite flowering tree : Witch Hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) Greely, Ontario, Canada. Every Autumn I go on a quest in search of my favourite tree it is such a wonder to see & find this most amazing delight of nature. This tree is definitely a blessing from Gaia and I am always filled with wonder & astonishment to bear witness to this most wonderful of plants.
