Autumn Gardens

My autumn, my garden. It is overgrown, unplanned yet colorful and unexpected! The annuals planted have made it through the hot summer, the rainy weeks on end and the winds from mother nature in her glory. The perennials are either done for the season or still trying! And so am I! The autumn garden is worth waiting for. It is like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.

The colors become more intense, the plants flourish. The morning dew takes its time to evaporate, leaving little diamonds on the leaves.

My front steps fill in with reseeded allysum.

Collections from summer walks suddenly become small sculptural installations.

And the mums.....just what the garden needs right now!
