Fall is almost here. September 22 signals this season change. As the
season changes, so must the plants in our gardens. Summer’s hot pinks
and refreshing limes wave goodbye as we welcome pumpkin orange, deep
yellows, rusts and burgundy reds. Friendly pansies faces appear on
garden shelves again, intermixed with mounds of mums while plumes of
grasses wave in the wind. Ornamental cabbages and kale will compliment
any fall garden design, then can tough it out during winter months
when few other decorative plants are brave enough to stick their heads
out in the cold. Yes, fall brings change but also a different beauty
to enjoy before winter makes its way onto the scene.

If you are in the Leesburg, Virginia area September 19-21, be sure to
visit the Monroe Technology Center’s Fall Plant Sale. You will find
lots of hardy fall mums, winter pansies, ornamental cabbage and kale
and other plants to make your garden beds, or perhaps just a pot at
your doorstep, welcome this fall season. Debi, PS, be sure to double click photos for beauty
