Autumn in the garden

Coleus 'Dipt in Wine' (thank you, cloverann, for reminding me of the cultivar name)


Rumex, Heuchera and trailing snaps in my Target wall planter

Volunteer zinnia

Echeveria in a biodegradable rice hull pot

Amazing how a pressure washer revitalized my Costco-purchased teak outdoor dining set. Bonus points if you can spot the dog chew toy!

Hummingbirds have been loving my Salvia leucantha. It froze to the ground last winter.

Japanese anemone

Coleus 'Royal Glissade'

My apple green chair planter is on its last legs (literally), but is hanging in there. I just replanted it with cool-season color.

Purple ornamental kale seems made for this pot I brought back from Mendocino

    Your photos are great! I lusted for that first Coleus earlier this year ('Dipt In Wine'? great name - luscious plant). Never got one :-( The green chair is perfect - and, happily, the birdbath isn't tilted (phew). Wish I had time this week to get some good pics of my garden. Your garden DOES look like bliss.

  2. You have a beautiful garden; I like the idea of the chair planter

  3. Angela, Your garden is very peaceful and inviting. I loved the pictures. I hope some day to create a garden of bliss.

    Thank you,

    Mary :>)
