In the perennial garden
Fall presents longer shadows, shorter days, and its own form of striking colors.
The Japanese anenome waits all summer before this very nice display arrives -- Well worth the wait.
The zebra grass guards the entrance to the Zen meditation garden. We like all our perennial grasses, and this one stands near the head of the class.
The long wall of our perennial garden is well served by Russian sage, a large spruce bush, some bayberry, and more perennial grass with some nice towering plumes -- good contrast and color.
The fragrant, profuse blossoming autumn flowering clemantis covers the garden pergola. Some morning glories climb the lattice as the chairs have been removed from the interior in preparation for inclement weather.
