This was just a small area next to the driveway at one of the gardens, but I liked the composition. There's a small birdbath under the light colored evergreen.
This place had a hobby/business of breeding different varieties of Japanese maples. I loved the color of this one, particularly with the sun hitting it and highlighting it in front of a shady background.
This place was overflowing with roses and lilies, but the real centerpiece was this amazing dogwood, a Cornus kousa variety that was about 50 years old. I've never seen one so spectacular.
