  1. Hi, Jack!
    Beautiful autumn colors, especially Hibiscus. I'd like to have it in my garden as well but am afraid it's too hardy.

  2. The autumn blossoms of your garden on the other side of the Atlantic are very similar to those in my garden: asters, malva, solidago..... However, I envy you about how the garden seamlessly merges with nature . I enjoy very much when you show these sites of your garden!
