Mid-October

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.

  1. Amazing autumn color! The hawk can’t help but be expectant, he’s a bird, and it’s a bird feeder after all. He wants his food too!

  2. What gorgeous color! What well composed photos. Gladdens my heart. There is a fall somewhere. There is still much beauty in the world. Thank you.
