The entry garden doesn't see much in the way of change through the seasons although it won't be long before many of these plants will be moved to their winter homes.
In the front courtyard the pink crystal grass, Melinus nerviglumis is starting to flower. Those seed heads will ensure a new crop of grasses for next year.
You wouldn't know there was sunken garden here. Viewed over the wall from the English garden.
In the English garden Rosa 'Felicia' with her beguiling fragrance. Just a glimpse of her through the Sun and Moon archway.
The Philippine violet on the corner of the patio is just starting to bloom.
As is the shrimp plant. A new addition to this same corner.
The planter of bunny ears cactus, Opuntia microdasys, is back on the wall.
Peas are up.
Mexican mint marigold, Tagetes lucida, is just starting to bloom.
The stock tank pond surrounded by gaillardia, cosmos and narrow leaf zinnias.
A splash of pink from the Japanese anemone. Are their petals supposed to be distorted?
The fall bloomers have definitely enjoyed our recent rains. And there is more to come this weekend.
