In my part of the gardening world we have a smattering of burgundies and reds, but a whole lot of gorgeous gold and, my friends, I love it!
Here's a peek at what's been happening this fall~I hope you love it, too.
The sunny Susans Border has seed heads and Physocarpus opulifolius ' Little Devil' hiding in the shadow. The still green Amsonia tabernaemontana will be changing colors, soon, but, the Cotinis 'Grace' is a lovely burgundy and Cercis candensis' yellow leaves are almost hiden among the golden yellow of Carya ovata
Amsonia hubrichtii has taken on its beautiful fall golden hues.
Lindera benzoin lights up the shade garden and just for a few hours the morning sun lights it up too. Also shining are a Japanese Maple and a Hamamelis, both nice understory trees.
Hope you fall is colorful and filling your heart with gladness.
PS I am taking the rest of the week off to recuperate from a minor medical procedure, but, will be back posting next week!
