Another one from the Gamble Garden Spring Tour. This house and garden were just beyond. Way too much work for a lazy (and budget constrained) gardener like me. But there were lots of great ideas, including the bougainvillea trained around a window and making its companion tree even prettier.

Dogwood (Cornus ‘Eddie White’s Wonder’) as a specimen tree. This one has a narrow upright frame, red fruit, and crimson fall foliage.
