    Fall has arrived in Our Fairfield Garden! The nights are cool now and the mornings brisk. After seeing my breath early in the day , I scamper about trying to get the houseplants and tender perennials back inside. Nightfall is here way too early and soon will be earlier  as Daylight Savings Time robs another hour from us. My bulb order should be arriving soon for Fall planting.

    But the consolation of this end to the summer gardening season is the advent of Fall and the warm colors that accompany it. Pink accents give way to warm yellows and oranges. Asters and mums seem to know they have to put on more of a show now the that spotlight is on them and the competition has narrowed. Pumpkins of white and orange add hues that will last into Thanksgiving, and dried blooms and seed pods add interest  to the garden as well as the Fall window boxes.

    Here are some of the displays currently in my garden, with more to come soon for Halloween!
