  1. Your fall colors are amazing. I really like the Euonymous albomarginatus and your new Zenobia pulverulenta 'Raspberry'. But the plant that made me look more than twice was the milkweed. Looks like something left over from halloween!

  2. You certainly do still have some autumn beauty in your garden. So much color! My garden has been hopelessly frozen. We have had record cold here this month. Just today we were able to get out and mulch leaves. The trees, maples mostly, are curiously holding onto their leaves. All else have dropped and gone to sleep. I am amazed at all the plants you can grow that I can't. I get a bad case of wants when I read your posts. Keep em coming. :)

  3. Beautiful! Pheasant's Tail Grass has stunning fall colors. I'm not familiar with this grass; I'll have to investigate it further. You have trouble with reseeding?
    I finally broke down and bought a small 'Fine Line' Buckthorn. For now it's in a pot and I hope to find it a permanent spot in the next couple of years. It's such a cool little tree.

    1. I posted a photo of the Pheasant's Tail grass on Facebook and someone commented that it reseeded a lot but then a few others said that they didn't have a big problem with it. I will keep my eye on it and see what happens. I love the buckthorn too, it is so unique.
