Nice combination of silver-blue, red, and dark green!

Hi Nadezda
Thx!! Nature is filled with such gorgeous colour combinations - glad the camera can capture them!

Nadezda said...

I see you have a perfect camera now.

I just planted my first Cranberry Bush! Can't wait for that gorgeous color.

Hi Sarah Kim
Thanks!!! I'm enjoying photography more and more all the time.

Hi Mario
I hope you love it! Spray with dormant spray next spring. Viburnum had some kind of caterpillar eating all its leaves for about the past 4 years now. This was the first fall the leaves did not look like lace.
I think about you working at the garden centre this past summer and being among all those new exciting plants!! I would have emptied out my savings I'm sure. :)
Thx for stopping by.

Astrid, what a fabulous contrast with the Viburnum and the Spruce. Never before heard of cranberries being associated with viburnum before.

Astrid said...

Hi Alistair
I love the colour combo too! The common name of Viburnum opulus is European Cranberry Bush (which is the one I have, I think).
Today is going to be a "catch up on blogs" Day so I will have a chance to read your latest posts too :)

Beautiful combo.

Astrid said...

Saw your Wordless Wednesday photo for today and it's lovely (but true to the season! Summer and fall are really gone…. :(

Gorgeous combination!

Hi Deb
Mother Nature sure provides some fabulous combinations, eh? Cannot believe it's the first of December. Now it's all about planning Christmas and not gardens for awhile….

Dear Astrid, I love this photo and this plant combination. Keep up the good work! What kind of camera do you use?

Hello Melissa
Thanks for dropping by! When I started to become very interested in photography, I bought a used Nikon D40 which I've been very pleased with. I now see almost everything in terms of "photo-ops" :)
