Landscaping by a Boat Landing

When I walked from Eastham Park to the boat landing, I didn't expect to see a garden, but then I came across this lovely bit of landscaping. I also didn't expect the photo to come out looking like a spot of paradise!

That's the South Fork of the Shenandoah in the background. 

P.S. Compare the second photo to this shot of crepe myrtle in 2006. I keep taking the same picture over and over!
