Beacon, soon lost

The Iris pseudacorus in the walkway garden is certainly impressive in the summer, with its strappy, upright foliage adding a structural element here.


Right now though, it is a beacon. Seemingly putting the last of its energy into color, it glows yellow and orange while its charm-school posture relaxes into a slouch.

It won't be long before it's gone altogether, as even the brightest nova of an autumnal plant...


...soon fades into the nebula of winter drabness.



The browns and grays are coming, so enjoy the color while it lasts!
