We've visited and enjoyed Jeff Calton's garden (tntreeman) in Tennesse quite a few times this year, and today we're getting a glimpse of its last hurrah for the season, courtesy of a shivering Jeff, who says he just about froze getting most these photos a few mornings ago. He says, "Since October 15th I have taken a few photos of my place. I'm not nearly so disciplined as Daniela to have a season-long series. If you haven't figured it out by now, I grow more trees, shrubs, woody ornamentals, and oddball perennials than flowery things. Everybody's interests are different, although I do like the flowery things too. I do enjoy fall, seeing the changing personality of the garden and the different facets of the plants, even the frozen dead stuff. I had things in flower up to just before Halloween but one night of 23 degrees sort of took care of that. Now I'm waiting for the remaining leaves to come down so I can clean it up, mulch it up, and tuck everything in bed for winter." Beautiful! Jeff, it sure looks like your garden won't suffer much, visually, from winter. The biggest benefit of a tree- and shrub-heavy garden! Thanks so much for sharing. **It's election day!

**** The push is still on--get outside and take some last minute shots, or compile a few you took earlier in the season. I'll be eternally grateful.... Email them to GPOD@taunton.com. Thanks! ****
