Summer falls to Autumn

Summer is coming to an end. I and the plants in my garden are relieved to see this record-breaking season close. Cooler days, the promise of rain (at long last), cleaner air, and beautiful colors are beginning to fill the minutes and hours of the garden. Here are a few hints of the changing season I’ve seen this week – in the home garden and while out walking.

Cornus changes early.
Our Rudbeckia is in full bloom.
I love this combination of colors – Eucalyptus and Acer (taken on a windy afternoon).
A favorite tree on my walking route.
My Anemanthele lessoniana (New Zealand Wind grass) is a highlight in my prairie bed.

I wish you good weather, clear skies, and a beautiful autumn.
