Celebrating the changing dynamics in a fall garden

It’s one of our favorite times of the year — fall. It’s getting darker earlier — there’s a slight chill in the air. Bring out the sweaters, simmer a soup filled with root vegetables. The leaves are turning deep red and mustard yellow. It’s the time of year we take a moment to celebrate the changing dynamics in the garden, intrigued by the luscious green leaves fading into a stiff gray and brown composition.

We think slowing down to appreciate these changing dynamics equally parallels the much touted time people take to stop and smell the roses.

And then there are plants that go beyond a traditional perennial cycle of bud to bloom to fall — plants that are downright spooky. Visit the community daily to learn more about 12 dark beauties. And add your plant photos celebrating fall with #AutumnBlooms or #Haunted.
