  1. Your fall garden is glorious, Phillip. As always, I'm especially impressed by your combinations. The variegated cistus is fabulous with that goldenrod.

  2. Beautiful garden .Echeviera variety is stunning.It would be my pleasure if you join my link up party related to Gardening here at http://jaipurgardening.blogspot.com/2020/09/garden-affair-flowering-aquatic-plants.html

  3. Fantastic fall garden, it's been my favorite season and your garden is a good example of why that is. I'm assuming the Echeveria will go inside for winter?
