We got an inch of blessed rain the other day. We need more but it was wonderful to have a rainy day. The garden soldiers on through the drought with asters, mums, and other fall color. We have had visitors of course.

I refurbished some of my hypertufa troughs – silver saxifrages needed dividing

The fall foliage this year is glorious despite the drought. But it doesn’t seem to be lasting long. We get a quick blaze of color and then the leaves dry out and drop. For those who don’t live in New England – here’s a taste.
