It’s beginning to feel like fall in northern Virginia. The bright sunny days are crisp and the night temperatures are dropping. While the trees start to undress for winter, the fall mums and pansies are putting on their gorgeous fall gowns and the ornamental cabbages and kales are ready to occupy a colorful spot in the landscape. Fall perennials are adding color to the show along with shrubs’ late season bloomers.
