Can you believe it’s October! A crazy year for sure.
I have not done very much to the garden the last few weeks. I like to let her go to sleep slowly for the winter months.
My back also needs the rest. Any gardener will know what I mean.
The fall loves salvia. It is everywhere in the garden.
The last butterflies are fighting over the best nectar spots, and chasing the hummers out of the garden. It’s every man or woman for themselves.
Then the flame acanthus are on fire with blossoms .The orange Celeste tree is also blooming now.
Cowpen daisies are proliferating as usual, and autumn sage is putting out its last blast of flowers.
Then there is the lovely and dainty coral vine. Bees and butterflies alike love her sweet pink blooms.
I’d say pretty nice for a little stroll through the garden.
The secret garden…
