October always brings the lovely blooms of Four O'Clocks. Here are the 3 colors I grow.
The light shifts dramatically in October and the blooms start to fade. There are a few Zinnias left up front.
While the front turns shady, the opposite is true in the backyard. Light pours in from the south and blooms start to appear. Here we see the native Goldenrod and Mexican Firespike in front of a Chinese fan palm.
The low angles of Autumn light play games with the shadows. Here's an Aspidistra leaf with a painting of silhouettes.
As the flowers fade the bold shapes and colors of the Agaves take the garden into its winter wardrobe.
Here's a dog's eye view of the same scene.
Well, that's it for now. For more fine flowers, please visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens.
She's on my sidebar favorites (unless that got erased by Blogger as well)
We must maintain our humor.
