Some fall colours in October
Maybe fetish isn't the right word but alliteration ruled the day when it came to titling this post.
Readers might assume that since I rarely post about veggies that growing them isn't very interesting to me: and they're right! I just don't find growing heirloom tomatoes, for example, terribly exciting (and apparently this was a lousy summer for such crops.)
I guess I'm an unreformed ornamentalist (nice blog name, by the way!) when it comes to things horticultural.
And in the fall, shrubs and trees become extremely ornamental!
Here are some examples (more to come!)--photos taken on my way home from a client visit:
