Time for Bed

A long row of mixed dianthus varieties fronts an elevated bed that features ninebark shrubs and a variety of evergreens, which can be seen in the background

Beautiful banner Elizabeth!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I agree and I like the name too. Hilarious!

I like the contrast of bright and colorful with the dark background. Great banner!

Thanks, one and all, for words and gestures of appreciation and encouragement.

As per @EscondidoCal's request, here's the source shot for the banner.

Because of the way NGA resizes uploads, you can't see any more detail in the individual plants that were featured in the banner, but you can get a sense of the overall scene that attracted my eye.

Thanks for posting the whole scene. Thumbs up
Very nice grouping of trees, plants, and structure.

We can see why it caught your eye.
It was just begging to be a banner. Smiling
