A Garden in Late Summer/Early Autumn

A little change of pace as I've been so wordy lately. Some pretty pictures for you of our local garden, Mc*Laughlin Garden.




That last photo of leaves with copper edges is my favorite tree. It's called a tri-colored beech and through the summer it has pink edges until the pinks turn to copper in autumn.


Isn't it lovely?

  3. Ahhhhh. I needed this today. I am at home sick with the stomach bug. Yuck. I love the pink edged plant. Can't wait to see it turn copper (hint hint)

  4. The beech is a beautiful tree. Would it grow in Oklahoma? How big does it get? Gardening is one of the pleasures I have in this life.

  5. Christine, follow the photo source and you will find quite a bit of information. It's not supposed to grow in my corner, but Mr. Mc*Laughlin loved it so that he made it happen.

    Beautiful tri-colored beech tree!

    You've been wordy? Mmmm, isn't that what blogging is? Multi-use of words, words, words. With some pics thrown in, for spice.

    An all-photo-blog, is...... a Photo Blog.

  10. I loved strolling along with you through this garden. Peace & beauty everywhere!

    The tricolor beech is gorgeous! Our local nursery has one growing under the canopy of several very old oak trees. I asked about it and was told that they generally don't do well in our area...too bad!

    Thanks for sharing. Chris

  14. It's nice to see such a beautiful selection of your local garden's flowers. It was quite nippy this morning when I went on my walk and I feel summer is beginning to fade away.

  15. Garden tours, even the virtual sort, always soothe and inspire. The tri-color beech tree is intriguing.

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. It means a lot to have friends "far from away."

  17. A tri-colored beech! So that's what that tree near the community pool is! Thanks, Vee!
    (Someone who shall remain nameless was trying to tell me that it was diseased....)
    Lovely garden shots. We must enjoy as many as possible as the seasons change...
