Fall Beauty

  Now that November is here, there are different things to see in the garden. Plants that boasted one colour in summer, now show another colour as they succumb to cold and frost.

 The big Sum and Substance hostas that flaunt their huge, chartreuse leaves all summer change yheir appeal as winter approaches.  How wonderful they look with its Fall colours.

 Too soon the leaves of the hosta will become entirely limp as they prepare to pass their nutrients into the soil for next year's growth. The leaves will lie limp on the ground releasing food for the soil as they lie under a cloak of snow. But for now they are in their autumnal gold stage.  The garden is beautiful all year long.
