Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day November 15, 2013

Who could wish for a more beautiful fall day? Here in the Washington metro area, on November 15, 2013, we have abundant color. To be more accurate, many of these pictures were taken at the National Arboretum in Washington, DC.  On the 15th of each month, garden bloggers post pictures of what's in bloom in our surroundings. If only my own garden were as colorfully planned for four-season interest! Well, I can always "reve en couleur", as my French Canadian mother-in-law likes to say.

  1. Happy Bloom Day!
    I like your photos. I believe your mystery plant is Chinese Lantern plant. I don't know the scientific name. :) I agree, it is very striking.
    Take care.
