Another day at Brightside Gardens, Monday September 29, 2014

There were tree trimmers and lawn mowers at Brightside Gardens, so it was not as tranquil as normal.  The tree trimmers are taking down several hundred foot tall dead trees on the property.  

I forgot my stool, so the gardener lent me a bucket to sit on.

Today I painted at Brightside Gardens, it was a lovely overcast day.  The leaves are beginning to change to lovely oranges, pinks, yellows and red.  The Pet Cemetery garden will not change, just the trees around it.

Next I will paint the garden, Acteon's Copse, #33, which Alan Gilbert so breathtakingly photographed, and was the centerpiece of his exhibit at Cylburn Arboretum January 2013.  The pergolas have not changed color yet, so I have time to plan it out.
