Afternoon at the Arboretum, Part II






The hydrangeas always turn such delicate shades in the Fall. My father is showing us how the cone-shaped ones came up as a surprise in his own garden. I think I got my love of flowers from my parents.

I couldn't agree more with Aran. Hydrangeas are one of my all-time favorites.

I got my love of gardening from my dad:)

My dad had green fingers. I miss hearing him pottering around in the garden in the early morning before sunrise. It is beautiful to see you enjoying this precious moment with your father.

What a treasure the Planting Fields Arboretum is. You are lucky to live nearby. Can't imagine a better way to spend time with family.
