garden | indian summer

Butterfly
hello, hello! thanks for the birthday wishes and sharing your flower selections in our last post. i've made a note of them and will be posting something in the near future. we had beautiful weather this weekend and spent an afternoon in wave hill on saturday. although a smallish public garden, it always has so many wonderful plants regardless of the season. we also saw the movie tamara drewe and loved it. the english countryside looks absolutely gorgeous and the story is really good, too. happy tuesday!

xo, cindy

these cuties were looking for fish and the resident frog.


pretty colored hedges seems to be on fire.


bright yellow chrysanthemums!


this is called pumpkin-on-a-stick and a native plant of africa.


hanging onto the wall garden.


pretty bonsai.


the shadow on these papayas reminds me of a shadow puppet of a rooster. see it?
