October - Review 2012

October has come to an end.  The gardens have been cutback and prepared for Winter.  Now is the time to enjoy some of the remaining final colors of the season here at Gardens at Waters East.

As happens with the “end of the month review” every month, it is difficult picking only a few photos that reflect the entire month in plants and views.  Thus, this is only a small sampling of the many many photos taken during October.  All of the following photos have never been posted before today.
