Autumn Evening Light

I love how the fading sun illuminates the garden at this time of year.

Here’s a few images of the garden and of course the sky!

Promise of a sunny day to follow.

Don’t forget Garden Bloggers Foliage Day on the 22nd, that’s Saturday.

  1. Beautiful pics, Christina! Your garden does look magnificent in the evening light! Is the tall grass in the first picture a stipa gigantea? And what’s the grass in the second pic?

    • Yes, the first pic is Stipa gigantea, this is the first year its flowered and I love it. Best of all it survived without water this year – which is a real plus! The second image is Calamagrostis × acutiflora ‘Karl Foerster’; with no irrigation it is dormant and the plants are actually getting smaller each year; with a little irrigation there is new new foliage amongst the brown. Which of your grasses have done well this hot, hot year? Christina

      • Andropogon scoparius, all the panicums, Indian grass and eragrostis (not the e. spectabilis, though). All the miscanus I have they are very well established with deep roots, so they’ve done well too…
