Isn’t that the one that goes: “The falling leaves drift by my window”? Not much of that going on around here yet, but some are beginning to take on the burnished tones that shout “Autumn”
One such is Acanthus spinosa, shown here with one of the remaining flower spikes.
When those leaves spill over the Acaena inermis ‘Purpurea’ (a ground cover that is evergreen, or should I say ever-purple), the effect is fine, if fleeting.
The foliage on the tree peonies is just beginning to turn. If weather conditions are right, they will blaze out.
Glowing fruits on the Poncirus trifoliata ‘Flying Dragon’ are getting backup from a tinge of color beginning to kiss the leaves.
I’m especially fond of the little red fruits that form on all of the Cornus Kousas. Color will soon follow.
One of the few Hebes that is easy to grow, ‘Quicksilver’ sprawls over a gravel bed with Chasmanthium latifolium hovering over it.
Culinary sage dresses up the herb garden.
