First Snowfall of the Season

With the Indian summer here it has not felt like fall until recently. Officially it arrived 9/23/15.  Fall has arrived in Rochester, NY.  The leaves have blanketed the ground recently.  This is one of the roses in my garden trying to show off after the first snowfall of this season.   Fall is my favorite season.  It may be the end of the growing season but it shows the beauty in so many plants.  Just think about the first bite of an apple in September or the first taste of toasted pumpkin seeds in October. 

Happy to take order for delivery in December until 11/30.   Show schedule on my website. 

 This is fountain grass ( not positive on the variety) shows off at the end of the season.  It was pretty throughout the summer and into early fall.  To really  appreciate the plant, you need to see it this way.  The look of the seeds at the top with this light dusting of the first snowfall of the season.  I tried to capture the inspiration I get from my garden this time of year.  What do you think?  are you feeling inspired to take a walk outside and admire nature where you are?  When you see the gentle twist of my wire or the spirals I use, they came from something beautiful I have seen in nature.

For those that read this blog regularly, you know this is my backyard pond.  We hand dug this over 15 years ago when were were re-landscaping the property.  This is my pond in fall.  Taken for  the perspective of the the side where the waterfall is on the brick path.  You have seen the pond with the waterfall in summer and the beautiful pink water lilies in full bloom.
