October SAGBUTT--Lake Wilderness Arboretum

A huge thanks to Gardener's Roost for organizing this outing.

The October gathering of Seattle Area Garden Bloggers United To Talk, or SAGBUTT for short, was all about shapes, textures, and colors.

Colors - to die for. They took my breath away. I'm glad you had such great time!

Loved, loved, loved this post. That's why I like autumn. Your photos were amazing.

Greetings from London.

Dear Wenches ... I would have loved to see all those gorgeous plants too !
That maple was just what I needed to see .. I missed out on our colour change because we have had such crappy weather .. it was gone from its peak so quickly, drats !
But seeing pictures like these are comforting ? : )

Thanks Tatyana. Maybe one of these days you'll join one of the SAGBUTT excursions. BTW, you have some pretty amazing Fall color over on your blog too.

Thanks Cuban! Great to hear from you again.

Hi Joy! Well, today the torrential rains have washed most of that wonderful color away. But we did have a nice stretch so can't complain too much.

I like the way you divided up all this beauty so succinctly. Do you know what that last plant is? I've seen it on a few other blogs but never with an ID that I can recall. Love the stars with blue berries and think I need whatever it is! Sorry I missed this outing, I was very sad to but just couldn't swing it with the family travel schedule that day. Seems like you guys had a fun time, hope to be there for the next one.

Curmudgeon said...

Thanks for stopping by katney. And thank you for adding us to your blogroll.

Hi Karen. That last pic is of a Harlequin Glorybower (Clerodendron trichotomum). It's also known as Peanut Butter shrub--the leaves smell strongly of PB when rubbed. Those turquoise berries are quite something.

Gorgeous! I especially liked that first shot - makes me want to add more shrubs in the garden.

Bonnie Story said...

Wow, great shots! I like the Beautyberry and Italian Arum both so much. That looks like a Larch tree - they are so cool. I look forward to making a Sagbutt confab - maybe the November one!! Happy gardening, Bonnie

Oh I love these photos! I'm always engrossed by the shapes in gardens - the unlimited variety of form, and the effect they all have together too.

I especially like no. 6 which is like a triangle coming out of the ground!
