A nearly native plant habitat garden located in northeast Georgia in eco-region 231 (Southeast Mixed Forest Province) zone 7b on 10 acres of meadow and forest habitat. I’m Karin, gardener, photographer and writer. I hope you enjoy a little taste of Georgia and will come back and visit often. xo!
It has been a typical October in Georgia. Cool to chilly mornings warming up to gorgeous sunny days in the 70's and 80's. Several days of rain and even a few mornings with frost advisories. Brrrr! What I didn't count on was that October would be such a busy month for me. All my gardening plans were put on hold while I attended to other projects. Now, in the final week of the month I find myself longing for time in the garden. Carolyn at This Grandmother's Garden has challenged fellow garden bloggers to take an Autumn walk through their garden. This is the perfect excuse (not that I really need one) to take a break and take a walk through my garden and see what I have been missing.
The cosmos are still displaying their brilliant white and the pollinators are very appreciative. These beauties have been excellent performers this fall.
The morning sun glows on the swamp sunflowers. They are a perfect addition to my fall garden.
I let the Cilantro go to bloom in the herb garden. I do like the dainty, white blooms.
The Milkweed is to go to seed. They sparkle in the sunshine as the wind carries them off to find a new place to put down their roots.
The chrysanthemum with their daisy like flowers are blooming non-stop.
And, the Asters are the stars of the fall garden. Several are new additions this season.
I am looking forward to life slowing down a little so I can take many more walks through my garden and enjoy the autumn splendor before it fades away to winter.
