V is for Variegated

Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday Round 3
and ABC Wednesday Anthology
have reached the letter V.







We parked in the parking lot of our favorite restaurant (where we can feast on wild Alaskan salmon) and the nose of Lorelei (our car) was almost against this small tree back-lit by the setting sun. The light shone through these persistent autumn leaves who apparently don't know that they are inappropriate for the holiday season!

I used to love the variegated bushes of the gardens of my childhood. Very nostalgic post for me.
