Fall Foliage and Capitol Columns Photos

Copyright © by Phyllis Wheeler, November 2013
The old capitol columns rest on a hill within the U.S. National Arboretum and they're particularly beautiful right now with the autumn color blazing all around them.

My husband graciously agreed to share his unique shot (above) through the columns to the foliage across the street.

I'm not sure what these yellow (and orange, red and brown) spiky bushes are but they are in their glory this fall. There's a giant planting of them in front of the capitol columns.

And here's a close up in case that might help one of you identify them (please let me know what they are if you do!). They were green in the spring and summer (and lovely, but not as striking as they are in the fall). I hope you enjoyed this mini photo tour of the capitol columns and surrounding plants. May God bless you this autumn and always!
