Best for Last

Our day at Cox Arboretum had come to an end.  We had toured the butterfly house, hiked the yellow trail, raced down the Crabapple allee, gotten lost in the boxwood labyrinth and gazed upon the Treetops tower – wishing we could ascend. As we walked toward the parking lot, this Metropark in Dayton, Ohio had one last gift in store for me.  The combination of plants you see here…Castor Bean, Tiger Eye Sumac, annual Plumbago, Viburnum and Juniper.  What glorious color and texture surprise for the eyes.

Thank you Cox Arboretum for making my day!
