This is from the prairie section of the garden. What you can't get from this picture is the sound of the grass in the wind. There's a reason why "The Wind in the Willows" makes a great book title.
Of course, we often get ideas when we visit places like this. Steve saw this evergreen container garden and said this would be his garden project for next year.
Speaking of evergreens, I realy liked these in the Conifer section of the garden.
Not sure what this is, but it reminds me of some kind of thistle and we both thought it was very cool.
One last look at the fall foliage...
I guess I kind of hope that life follows the cycles of nature. If so, the autumn of life should be pretty great.
