The fall light, slightly cooler temps, and small booster rainstorms are causing blooms to burst all around Austin. It's very pretty out there right now. I planted a few of these pink variegated Gregg's salvias last year (above) and they finally decided to start blooming.
Below, evidence that our garden is merely steps away from becoming Grey Gardens. If you come by sometime and can't find the house beneath all the growth, just shout our names until you find us in the mass.
Barbados cherries are flush with blooms. Lovely!
And of course, now is the time for beautyberries to begin to shine. I'm loving this combo of beautyberry and Turks cap just outside our bedroom window.
