  1. I’ve got that shrimp bush (6th photo) in my front garden! And I love the plants with multi-coloured leaves (3rd last). Had a similar one in my Mum’s shrubbery in Yorks when I was a kid – and not seen since. Lovely photos and I especially like the little birds. πŸ™‚

      I loved the shrimp plant also, so cute. We have the same taste in plants! I love colored foliage, it’s like the plant is blooming all season. The lil birds were a joy. Sadly, trying to capture them with a camerone didn’t work out that well. The folks with the 2 foot long lens cameras were looking at me with a chuckle. What-eva!

      Brrrr. It was about that temp outside here also. I would love fall more than I already do if it were to just roll into spring instead of winter! It would be good for my psychy to work in a place like this in the winter!

    • What a wonderful idea! I did see a few folks relaxing on the benches. We tried to sit by the bird feeders, waiting for them to come for food and me to try to get a blurry blob of colored feathers! Not exactly what I call relaxing, however!
