dans le jardin

The garden is definitely winding down for winter, such as it is here. The last remaining blooms look a bit bedraggled, and even the perennials are drab and sparse. “Fall color” is always in short supply in Southern California, and in our garden it’s purple more often than not.

    Ooh, glad you asked! I’m seeing the first few clusters of russet red leaves on our lovely Texas Red Oaks, acorns dropping by the millions and a wonderful musky, earthy aroma, much like spring! Central Texas is beautiful this time of year. Now if only the leaves didn’t all drop right at Christmas time, without fail

    All of the plants in my patio garden are either dead or dormant from lack of watering due to the drought. However, the Japanese Maple outside of my upstairs living room window is starting to turn and is reflecting soft pink light throughout the room. Nice!

    Stars in my garden right now are the berries and rose hips, especially the purple surprise of callicarpa (common name BeautyBush) berries. . . .
