Conifer Garden

I have caught the conifer bug.  My recent membership to the American Conifer Society has opened my eyes to a whole world of shape, texture, color and intrigue. It satisfies every curiosity from macro to micro aesthetics and I have a feeling this is just the beginning. Here are a few photos from a recent ACS Western Regional meeting in Olympia WA.  For more amazing conifers  check out my gallery.  Warning – Conifer addiction could happen to you too!
