This morning I returned to the Allen County Children’s Garden. The tall grass garden is raging to record growth; the mulch path that winds through it was almost completely obscured with overgrowth. There were so many bees buzzing through the garden that I didn’t want to risk getting stung walking through that labyrinth.
In addition to my usual shots of flora from this delightful public garden, I also offer some of the whimsical decorations on display here.
We have started the slow march toward fall. In the background of one of the decorations, there is bokeh of yellow tree leaves. We’ve had a deficit of rain this summer so some of the leaves that are already changing may be due to leaf drop, a strategy trees use to cope with drought.
