September glories, a tour of my garden.
I never posted much in this forum, but walking around a few days ago
I decided this was all too beautiful not to share with other people
(I have no local garden buddy in the geek category, where I place myself,
so I'm hoping other geeks out there will enjoy these.
I don't have a web site gallery, so they are all in separate posts,
sorry for the inconvenience!
The Caryopteris have outdone themselves this year, the winter was mild,
so there was a lot of live growth to give them a head start,
at least I'm assuming that to be the reason.
Since I followed advice and deadheaded all my Heleniums, I actually got
them to bloom with the Coreopsis this year, waahoo!
In the background is an old apple tree bearing a Silver Lace vine in flower
and, barely discernable, a dogwood that died and got spray painted silver.
