Autumn Morning

I started out this morning intending to just take a few photos of the Persicaria bloomss that were just being hit by the right type of morning light...


...but I ended up snapping photos for about 30 minutes. There was so much to discover on this crisp autumn morning!



***

Do I need to say anything about any of these? I'll start with the Persicaria and go from there...


I wondered if planting my 'Golden Arrow' so close to my 'Painters Palette' seedlings was the right move, but I love how the blooms interact!


Those red/pinks led my eye to the castor bean planted so late in the season, and just about eye level (as opposed to 10' tall):


The flowers are like a miniature Christmas tree complete with bows! (except the tree is the wrong color)

From there I just let the sun backlight everything...


...and now I'll just freeform and mix it all up. Enjoy!



















I restrained myself -- only five bamboo shots and four of papyrus.

Hope you're enjoying autumn mornings in the garden as much as I am!

Beautiful! I'm enjoying your crisp fall morning vicariously. Here in Davis, CA the thermostat is permanently stuck on summer. I'm so over it!

Hi Alexander! Thank you!

Peter: Thanks! It would be more mellow if I didn't have a list of chores to complete before the first frost... :)
