  1. This is what I missed during my holiday in the US. I missed it by just a few days. But I cannot tell you how satisfied I am sitting in the comforts of my home taking a tour and looking at every leaf and every colour. Stunning is under statement.

    What amazes me is who takes care for all this.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • I’m sorry you missed the autumn colour in the US. The northeast and northwest are supposed to be the best regions to experience it. Thanks for your kind words about my garden 🙂 Who takes care of it is my wife and me, but she is the brains behind the project, I freely admit!

      • You two must be made of special soil.We use this expression here when we talk of people with unusual talent. We too have a garden a small one but we are not able to keep it in a manner that we would want to although we do have assistance around.

        Yours is a vast area and all those leaves will surely hit the ground and then you have those well manicured lawns – I give up (lol)
