|You knew this was tarragon, didn't you?|
|Beautiful grasses in the Four Seasons Garden|
Soon we will have a big work day and all the grasses will be totally cut back to the ground. We do this so that you will be able to see all the daffodils in the spring.
Right now the herb garden is looking especially nice.
A lot of this garden is annuals, so a lot of this garden will be gone before too much m
There are plenty of interesting things to see now. Like seedpods.
There are a lot of red things to see now.
|Red flowers without a label so I don't know what they are|
These flowers look a bit like foxgloves, but I never knew foxgloves to be so bright red.
|Serviceberries, I think, but I could be wrong|
There are a lot of shrubs that have nice berries now.
|Pincushion flower, an annual which needs endless deadheading|
I am so glad that we are finished with deadheading all the flowers for the season. It's not difficult, it's just endless, especially for things like these pincushion flowers.
|The grasses are at their height|
The ornamental grasses are at their best right now. These are some of my favorite things to see in the Garden.
|These peppers are very hot.|
These peppers are so interesting to see, but not to my taste to eat.
|The sumacs are the first trees to turn|
A final reminder. This sumac is just the beginning. Soon all the trees and shrubs will be turning on their autumn colors. Go see the garden now, and then go back in a couple of weeks.
