Suddenly it’s September and the days are already noticeably shorter and the nights cooler. Transitions to Fall are taking place in our garden, flowers going to seed and the colors are muting. Some of the plantings are putting on a final show, and the sturdy little annuals – vincas, snapdragons, begonias, mexican heather, impatiens and perilla – keep some color in the flowerbeds.
At first, there didn’t seem much to photograph for you, but I was surprised with how much was still going on although it is nearing the end of the growing season. To my eye, even the seed heads are beautiful as they draw the birds, especially goldfinches, in to feed. So here is an early September stroll through our Fairfield Garden. Come along with me!
