Japenese Maple close-up. This one is a shade variety.
Purchased these Japenese Shi Shi to mark entrance to garden from side yard. The left & right pair are suppose to bring good luck. They will be set more permanently with a pea gravel path down the slight down slope to the pagoda below.
Another woodland wild flower that has come back on its own.
Bee visits bleeding heart.
Step added to ease way down railroad ties.
