Fall is arriving in my garden

First a few shots of some of the containers:

I don't know how you manage Michelle! Everything looks so neatly planned and executed. The colors and textures...

"Executed" takes on a different meaning in my gardens, especially after two weeks of my being away....

Your gardens still look very fresh for this time of year. It looks like you had a very nice summer.

I need to take notes of your gardens and move some of my things around to more pleasing vignettes. GB is spot on - your execution is excellent!

Such pretty tableaux.

I am forever amazed at how flat the countryside is and I love the shot of the corn. The other thing I noticed is the way the light is different... for me, I think, that is the one telltale sign that autumn is approaching.

How absolutely GORGEOUS! Everything looks wonderful Michelle. You have so much fall color in your borders and the containers are brilliant. What is the small leaved chartreuse plant spilling over the edge of the pot in the fourth container? And that shot with the shaft of sunlight hitting the Sum and Substance and Hakone grass is TTT (Too Totally Terrific)! Love them all and many thanks for sharing these. I'll be back to peruse again.

Thanks everyone. I'm not sure I'm really a planner but more of a plopper.

I meant to mention that the corn is broom corn and the tassels are the seeds. I've already used a couple in a large floral arrangement, which is why I grew it.

It was a good summer rain-wise, but I actually haven't spent much time out there in at least a month. With vacations and having Kenzie so often and other commitments.

Deanne, that is an oxalis 'Molten Lava'

Michelle, thanks for letting us visit! Your borders are so well put together, interesting color variation. I love the broom corn, and will have to keep it in mind for next summer. Your combo pots look great too!

Such lush color at this time of the year - unlike the burntout stuff I see in my area -- your "plopper" ways, Michelle are done with a terrific instinct then for color, texture and a great eye.

So lovely!! You've truly planned a wonderful 4 season garden -- it's so fun to see how it's matured in the last few years.
