With the start of the ‘ber’ months of September, October, November and December the weather is finally starting to cool down. Autumn or Fall has been arriving slowing in the garden over the past several days and officially started September 21.
The sedum has turned a wonderful shade of red/pink. The ligularia is blooming while the hosta leaves are starting to turn brownish and curl at the ends.
Autumn decorations have been making their way into the garden, while some of the summery ones have been put away.
The rake wreath has been used for a few years now, and this year I updated it a bit with some new coloured leaves.
The sea glass flowers were an addition to the garden this year, made with a lid, some sea glass, magnets and glue. I first picked out similar sized pieces of glass, and using E600 glue fastened them on in layers around the lid, finishing with a piece of glass that has some decoration to it for the middle. A fairly quick and easy craft based on the bottle cap flowers I had made last year.
A couple of other fall wreaths were hung outside and the vase of flowers on the mantle now has sunflowers in it.
The coleus always puts on a glorious show of reds/oranges/greens. This is one of the few annuals I now purchase each year as it grows so well in the big pot in the shady front garden.
The birds and critters continue to be a great source of amusement with all their antics.
The black walnuts are readily available and the squirrels are enjoying the feast.
Hope you are enjoying some lovely fall days in your garden.
Through my Garden Gate is the place you can see other September gardens from around the world.
