Sometimes I look at my garden and I am amazed at how many shades of green there are everywhere. Here are some photographs I took this morning when the early light was perfect to capture the hues from dark green to chartreuse. But there are also leaves that are pink (tricolor beech), even brownish color (weeping beech), orange tones like the Japanese Andromeda and the Red Japanese Maple. Aren’t we lucky that we have a spectrum of colors that enhance our environment in such a magnificent way? Enjoy!
