October Colors, Philadelphia

There are still Sugar Maples growing in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia, planted decades ago.  The photo below shows a Sugar Maple bravely displaying its October colors, despite a hard life evident in the shape and form of the tree.

There are many gardens all through Philadelphia.
Below, late Chrysanthemums and Callas at Morris Arboretum:

And, here is a planting that I created with Red Abyssinian Banana, Hot Peppers, Lantana and Leonotis/Lion's Head

Quote for the month, from Ray Bradbury:
"Treasure this day and treasure yourself.  Truly, neither will happen again."
