Autumn…just before the windstorm

Well into November, as I was finishing up a few final chores in the garden, I was so pleased to see my white Enkianthus looking quite beautiful. It is one of my special treats when it blooms as I have not seen all that many white ones. Ususally they are like the one on the other side of the property which is the pink-veined cultivar, and so, it is always nice to see it, here, in the Woodland garden, summer or autumn. It had a chance to turn these bright colours before its leaves were all swept away a few days later when we had our first real wind storm. If you will look carefully, you will see the ‘spirit’ of the garden overlooking this lovely plant.
