Crabapples, Roses, and Dogwood -- a noontime walk

On Avalon Hall's side porch, across from Lipscomb's campus school, a group of young boys were enjoying their noon recess, adding the loud laughter of playtime to the scene. Meanwhile I walked along the edge of the campus, photographing the brilliant colors of the young ornamental crabapple's ripe fruit and trying to show the struggling October roses to best advantage.

Notice the large gall on this aged elm tree on the corner of Avalon Hall's side yard.

From the Ruth O'Brien Rose Garden at the back of Avalon Hall:

And so, home again, to the dogwood nextdoor, in my sister's front yard:
