With this past week's hard freeze, the back quarter acre has officially crossed into fall. Wilted dahlias were pulled up and tulip bulbs rotated in. Why is it that there are both too many bulbs to squeeze in during fall planting and not enough when spring flowering comes around?
These mums are happily sited, along with Pennisetum setaceum "Rubrum" (red fountain grass) and Helenium "Dakota Gold," in a planter on my front step. Yes, those colors again. But don't they look happy together?
