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!
The leaves in autumn do not change color from the blighting touch of frost, but from the process of natural decay.-They fall when the fruit is ripened, and their work is done.-And their splendid coloring is but their graceful and beautiful surrender to life when they have finished their summer offering of service to God and man.
~ Tryon Edwards
I am thankful for all the leaves that lay on the ground that will become leaf compost and make my garden grow better next year. In nature everything has its purpose.
