September 2014 - new photos

September 2014 has now come and gone.  The Gardens at Waters East now moves on to Autumn and eventually Winter.  Reflecting back it is pretty obvious that this recent month still had lots of interest, color, and visitors.  Here are some never before seen photos taken in September.
Hope you enjoy you time in the garden.
