I’ve been waiting eagerly for these plants to reach their peak of fall color and yesterday they dee-livered! After posting this on Facebook I learned that the designer is well-known plantswoman Angela Treadwell-Palmer. Great example of the kind of native-plant design being promoted by Thomas Rainer, who just turned in his book on the subject Timber Press. So, we wait ’til 2015.
But back to this photo – it’s straight form the iPhone. No alterations. And FYI, the columns once held up the U.S. Capitol Building, before new wings were added. They make for a great photo op all year but fall is my favorite.
