Muhly grass, & lavender with salvia in the forefront

Jeff Calton shares his end of season garden highlights with us.

"This has been a warm fall so things have lasted better than they normally do.  Things will have to come to an end soon though.  Enjoy the end of season color while we can as it will be a long time until spring. Seems to me colors are more intense in the fall or am I just accepting that most of the color will be gone soon. I won't have any wide angle panoramic photos until I get this place cleaned up. It's a mess!"
