Not too Late for Fall Gardening!

"Yes, hello there.  Mews here in the back trying to decide what to put in my containers to add some fall flair!  This was one of my summer designs-simple, but satisfying delicate red geraniums, creamy fat marigolds, dark pink zinnias, and a blackish green sweet potato vine.  Notice I'm not showing you what they look like now since they are-shall we say-past their prime and fixing to get ripped out and/or transplanted elsewhere.  For fall I'm thinking some dark orange coleus, festive orange and black pansies and some red fountain grass for movement. Sometimes, though, I have to just take what I can get at the nursery-you know how that goes this time of year.  Ah, how I long for that year-round Hawaiian garden!

  5. That sounds gorgeous, Mr. Mews! The only thing we could grow here in the fall is the pansies (our first frost is around October 15).

    Your summer pot was a lovely combination too - very well done!
