Color is developing fast now in our yard. I took these photos on Sunday, in the fog.
The golden hop on the gate.
The rugosa rose on the driveway wall.
The callicarpa, Beauty Berry, alongside the rose.
Web draped roses, old and new.
There "alliums" hold their "metallic" color.
Sedum Autumn Joy
Tom has worked hard to get the raised beds put away for the winter. He had to straighten the bulging sides, which required a lot of digging. He rebuilt the hoop houses and has since moved most of his bonsai into them. After letting the rain soak the soil, he will apply the plastic sheeting.
All that's left is a few zinnias.
Color on the maples comes slowly in the shade. There will be updates.
A fuchsia acrobat landed safely on a filipendula leaf.
The kiwi vine is almost bare.
The deciduous bonsai trees are left out to appreciate their color. The one on the left is old. The other two are new and still in training pots.
The spider appreciates them too.
There are lots of berries this year. I wonder how long it will be before the robins come and strip the cotoneasters.
From the driveway this is how the trees in the front yard looked on Sunday.
The Korean Dogwood and the Japanese Full Moon Maple.
