I'm just throwing these up, so no editing.
1) My favorite view of the garden, the 2nd or main entrance beneath the arbor
2) The japanese maple is sending out leaves after losing many in the August heat. Hope this doesn't mean it's wasting energy it could use for root growth in a few weeks.
3) Even I think the aster is beginning to look gaudy (but boy, the dozen bees on it the other day don't think so).
4) Tiger eyes sumac brilliantly orangey-red.
5) Meiko enjoying my waking him up on the scratcher
6) Valen ignoring me
