We are enjoying beautiful weather here this weekend, the beginning of fall color, the fireworks of Purple Muhly Grass, asters and sunflowers, and a sprinkling of nearly perfect late season roses. Later today we're off to the State Fair to see the garden exhibits and farm animals and eat carnival food.
along with Azalea 'Autumn Amethyst' and Northern River Oats, with another young Blackgum in the background.
Just as the planet Venus is gaining ascendency in the fall, a brilliant jewel set low in the sky, the mum that shares her name also becomes a star in the October garden.
