Adding Color to the Autumn Garden

Welcome to Beyond The Garden Gate. I primarily blog about my garden, although I also like to join several lovely ladies for tea time, and I do publish the occasional recipe or travel feature as well. Today it's the garden; to be precise, the autumn garden.

 When I planted 'Blue Paradise' phlox last week, I thought that would be my final plant purchase of the season. However, I changed my mind.

 I've been re-designing this needs help, doesn't it?

 I added ornamental cabbage, pansies, mums,

 and a couple of pumpkins. It looks much better now - so colorful, and not so much empty space.


 A solution that left me with brilliant color for fall, at least in one area of my garden.

Next, a peek at the rest of the garden:




 Clematis 'Rebecca'

Blue Forget-me-nots

 Pineapple Sage

Hydrangea 'Pinky Winky'

In the garden, color makes a powerful statement.

I want to say also that Bernideen's fall garden was my inspiration for the change in my border garden.
