'The Grist Mill' ~ Babcock State Park, West Virginia. What a beautiful place I frequented here as a child when I would go visit my great aunt in Rainelle WV. It most beautiful during the fall during the foliage change. I really like the contrast between the white water and warm colored trees. Babcock is a sign of abandoned industry of what there once was.

Grey santolina, or cotton lavender, is a wonderful plant for your flower beds. It's naturally dome shaped, and takes readily to shearing, if you would prefer a perfect sphere or a pyramid or what have you. It blooms with small yellow flowers that should be removed immediately after blooming or the plant will get scraggly. This also comes in an emerald green form--you can plant the two together for a checkerboard effect. It's great!
