Fall is in the air!!

Fall seems to be rapidly approaching but there are still new and wonderful things to be seen here in the gardens! The canna lily and cardinal flower are in bloom, the pink turtlehead lily has popped open and the seed harvest has begun! We have already collected some foxglove, columbine and poppy seeds but just yesterday I was able to get some butterfly bush seeds. The hydrangeas are drying in the garden shed in preparation for the Dream of Beauty event. I am so excited to see what this fall brings and to watch as the amazing colors of autumn wash over the site. Stay tuned for pictures of this! Also, I just wanted to remind everyone that we have a Volunteer Day approaching. It's this Saturday September 11th from 9am to noon. Coffee and snacks will be readily available for all. I look forward to seeing everyone :-)
