Garden journal entry


Tinantia erecta glistening with dew, surrounded by coneflower seedheads
September 19, 2008. I love this time of year, starting at the very latest end of summer, when nights start to cool and the garden escapes from the dog days. It's the best time for gardens like ours, that are inherently full and messy - a look that is strained in late spring and summer, when better planning and design would serve to showcase the wealth of flowers more effectively. Come fall, the slightly bedraggled look seems just right - with late-season annuals joining in with autumn perennials and seedheads of all kinds. And with the sticky heat gone, I enjoy being out in the midst of it again. Happy fall gardening!
