There seems to be no denying it any longer, the garden is saying that it's autumn.
These artichokes were gorgeous in bloom and I rather like them now as well.
How thoughtful of the spiders to hang Halloween decorations on all the trees.
So, for all of us warm color loving, pumpkin spice adoring, hot cider quaffing, squash munching, gourd centerpiece making, indian corn hanging, leaf gazing, egg nog spotting, ornamental grass bloom worshipping, sweater wearing, Thanksgiving hosting, Halloween reveling lovers of fall, it's a glorious time.
I'm not particularly fond of the season that follows myself but I like how it cleans up the overgrown beds a bit.
First Camellia sasanqua sighting this fall. Here's 'Yuletide' at Vassey.
C.s. 'Apple Blossom' at Watson's My sasanquas never bloom this early rather they start a month later in mild years and bloom through February when it's time for the Japonicas to take over.
The cell phone camera seems to do a better job with close-up subjects than with things like this maple tree aflame with glorious fall color. Didn't have my real camera with me when I came across this gorgeous tree.
Happy Fall, Y'all!
