Blossoms and Berries

These images were all taken on September 12, during our visit to the Leila Arboretum near Battle Creek, Michigan, and are the last of the photos I'll be sharing from that day.

I do hope you've enjoyed seeing these late-summer blooms from the arboretum as much as I've enjoyed sharing them here.

Doug and I have been traveling for the better part of three weeks, and I know I've missed some of your posts. We didn't always have good internet connections, and sometimes the days were just too short to keep up with all your blogs. But we're home now, and I hope to be more faithful about returning your kind visits.

Of course, our trip yielded lots of photos that will be posted here over time. I hope you'll enjoy seeing the photographs almost as much as we enjoyed seeing the subjects first-hand.
