October SAGBUTT at Soos Creek Botanical Gardens

Seattle Area Garden Bloggers United To Talk (SAGBUTT) 
one chilly morning in October. 

Some of the group couldn't make it because of illness,
some due to children's sports games, or scheduling conflicts,
but three of us did, and were treated to an intimate tour of the SCBG by the owner.

Please stroll with us on our tour;
documented below
with lots of pictures
and very few words.

Ever wonder what a snapshot of a fall in the forest would look like?
Wonder no more.

Hydrangea aspera leaves--HUGE!

The Acer Yvonne dubbed a VW Bug

Morris called this the Snake Bark tree. 
Does anyone know the botanical name?

  3. Fantastic photographs, you capture the essence of autumn.

  4. Great pics! Love the of my fave plants...and the birds.

  5. Great post, I admire the writing style :) A little off topic here but what theme are you using? Looks pretty cool.

  6. @ Morris called this the Snake Bark tree.
    Does anyone know the botanical name.

    More than likely a maple but which one not sure several ones with this bark pattern. Acer = maple genus.
    specific epithet could be pensylvanicum-Striped Maple, hersii-Snakebark maple or davidii- David Maple. If had to choose would be Snakebark. Really like the blog.

  7. Enjoying your blog, absolutely love the pictures!
